It’s going to be a busy day for Everton, as Frank Lampard is ready to take over as the club’s new manager, and his first day might be frantic.
Everton supporters are hoping that Frank Lampard will be named as the club’s new manager.
After Rafa Benitez was ousted two weeks ago for a terrible performance with only one win in 14 games, the former Chelsea player will take over.
Former Chelsea manager Frank Lampard is expected to turn around the fortunes of the Toffees, who are now 16th in the table.
It’s not only the day Frank Lampard is expected to take over, but it’s also the last day of the January transfer window, with all deals due by 11 p.m. this evening, and Everton will be hoping to add to their squad.
With Abdoulaye Doucoure, Fabian Delph, and Tom Davies all injured, the midfield could be a priority.
Lampard is expected to sign Donny van de Beek as his first signing. After rejecting an offer from Crystal Palace, the Dutchman will join the Blues on loan, subject to confirmation.
Since arriving from Ajax in the summer of 2020, Van de Beek has struggled for playing time at Old Trafford. He has only played 579 Premier League minutes in two seasons, which is less than seven entire matches.
Everton’s priority for the remainder of the transfer window is to sign a central midfielder.
