An insider has claimed that Everton and Frank Lampard will face another relegation battle next season if they do not bring in players soon amid rumours they are interested in bringing in Wolves outcast Adama Traore.
After a disastrous 21/22 season where the club narrowly escaped relegation, they have not stormed into the transfer window despite needing to rebuild under Lampard. So far they have managed to sell one of their top players in Richarlison, but recently they have been linked with a swoop for Wolves forgotten man Traore.
Insider ExWHUemployee believes that the Toffees could face another relegation battle next season if they do not make moves in the transfer market soon and if they do pick up Traore, he could be a crucial player for them next season.
He said on the Transfer Show, “Everton hasn’t really signed anyone this window, and their situation is quite bleak. And I really do think if Lampard doesn’t bring in some players soon, they could be in another relegation battle next year. So Traore, if they do bring him in could be a crucial signing for them.”
TIF Thoughts on Ex’s comments…
After losing a player of Richarlison’s talent and importance to the side the Everton hierarchy needs to be smart and sensible with their signings to make sure they can replace the Brazilian 11 goals and five assists he produced last season.
They are currently linked with Traore and his teammate Morgan Gibbs-White this summer, however, neither have proven they can produce at a high level in the Premier League as Traore only managed one goal in 20 appearances before being carted off to Barcelona. Gibbs-White on the other hand impressed last season in the Championship with 11 goals and nine assists but has only previously scored one goal in 46 Premier League appearances.
While Traore failed to impress last season, there is no doubt that he could pick his form up again if he is given the consistency and time to find his legs again. He is powerful and full of pace which could be hugely beneficial for a player like Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Anthony Gordon, but there is no guarantee which is something Everton needs.
