Everton didn’t create enough chances for the quality of their side last season and Frank Lampard needs to do something about that.
Luckily for Evertonians around the world, the boss is already looking to the transfer market to add some crucial creativity to the Toffees’ attack and he could be in line for a bargain.
90min reported on June 16 that Everton are among six Premier League clubs who have inquired about 22-year-old winger Dwight McNeil who could be open for a move this summer.
He failed to reach the heights of previous seasons for Burnley in 2021-22, which contributed to the Clarets’ relegation from the top flight on the final day after the home loss to Newcastle (one of the teams in the running) .
The Lancashire club have a release clause in McNeil’s contract but it is seen as significant, according to Express reporter Ryan Taylor.
There is now renewed optimism for the Evertonians that we could make the decision to sign the Englishman as Lancs Live reports that the Clarets could well accept an offer of just £15m this summer following their relegation.
In this era of football, £15million is almost average for a summer signing and it’s not something that should see us ruled out of a move by one of the other clubs in the race.
Given how badly our own season went last time, we don’t have the same type of attraction as before, so we have to do our best to get ahead of the transfer market. approaching players early.
The sooner we can make deals, the less time our rivals will have to fight back and it will be to our advantage as other parties scramble to deny us.
They may be able to stop us from time to time, but the Premier League can’t stop every signing we try to make and eventually it will work.
In other Everton news, work is underway behind the scenes to name a new role in the club’s academy, but the deadline is only set for July 1.
