Everton: Dean Jones says Frank Lampard wants Premier League striker

Everton: Dean Jones says Frank Lampard wants Premier League striker -Everton News

Transfer insider Dean Jones has now dropped some new details on Everton and Frank Lampard’s search for a new striker.

The Lowdown: Striker needed

Following Dominic Calvert-Lewin’s injury, the Goodison Park outfit are in desperate need of a new striker up top.

They have sold Richarlison to Tottenham Hotspur, and have let both Ellis Simms and Nathan Broadhead go out on loan to Sunderland and Wigan Athletic respectively, so they are extremely short in that area of the pitch at the moment.

The Latest: Premier League striker wanted

Speaking to GIVEMESPORT, Jones has shared that Lampard ‘wants’ the striker that the Merseyside club choose to bring in to be from the Premier League, so that he is familiar with them and can work with them straight away:

“I was told Lampard specifically wants to know a fair bit about whichever striker he ends up signing because he wants to have somebody that he knows he can get the best out of pretty early on.

“So, on the back of that, he pretty much wants a Premier League striker. He wants someone that’s been around the league.

“Even if they haven’t been a regular, he wants to have seen them and understand what they’re about. So I think he’ll probably look for someone that’s on the fringes already at a Premier League club.”

The Verdict: Understandable

The Toffees need to bring in a centre-forward that can hit the ground running quickly, and so it is understandable that Lampard wants them to be from the top flight.

This perhaps narrows their search for a new number nine, with Chelsea’s Armando Broja and Southampton’s Che Adams two of the names who have been linked with a move to the Blues.

Nonetheless, the foreign market could also prove fruitful, and may be cheaper then buying directly from a rival, but Lampard seems to know exactly what he wants.
