Everton: Club looking at Daniel Jebbison

Image for Everton: Club looking at Daniel Jebbison

Everton are targeting young Sheffield United striker Daniel Jebbison this summer, with the 19-year-old being described as an “exciting player.”

That is according to journalist Pete O’Rourke, who was speaking to This is Futbol about the Toffees’ potential transfer plans, going into the final few weeks of the transfer window. 

According to YorkshireLive, the Goodison Park side have already had one bid, reported to be £5m, turned down for Jebbison last summer. 

The same report interviews former Blade Stuart McCall, who states that the club have no intention of selling the six-time England U19 international this summer, as he is part of the management team’s plan to bring success to Sheffield United.

But O’Rourke believes that Everton could be looking to bring Jebbison to the club this summer, and develop him so that he could eventually become a regular in Frank Lampard’s side. 

“Everton, I think will be thinking they could maybe bring him [Jebbison] in now and develop him and become a first team regular in the future.

“So yeah, an exciting player and one that maybe Everton are looking ahead to and thinking he could be a player that could become a regular in Frank Lampard’s side.”

TIF Thoughts on O’Rourke’s comments

We believe that Jebbison, who has previously been described as a “shining light” by Sky Sports pundit Micah Richards, would be a useful signing for Everton at the moment, due to a training injury to Dominic Calvert-Lewin meaning that Salomón Rondón is the only senior striker available at the club at the moment. 

Ironically, the young star’s first Premier League start was at Goodison Park, in which he scored the winner in a 1-0 win for Sheffield United in May 2021.

And following a loan spell at League One Burton Albion last season, where he scored nine goals in 23 appearances according to Transfermarkt, we think that Lampard should be imploring the Everton board to make a move for the Canada-born striker this summer, with the club’s centre-forward issues becoming very apparent.
