Everton: Lampard ‘wants Premier League striker’ at Goodison Park
Lampard has overseen a hectic transfer window at Goodison Park but the Toffees could still strengthen significantly ahead of the September 1 deadline.
What is the latest transfer news from Everton?
Five new players have been signed by the Merseyside club as they look to steer clear of another relegation battle in the 2022-23 campaign.
What has Jones said on Everton’s search?
Jones believes that, while a striker remains on the agenda, Lampard specifically wants a player he is familiar with.
The transfer insider believes that this likely means that only forwards with Premier League experience are being targeted by the club.
Jones told GIVEMESPORT: “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.”

What other options are out there?
Everton are running out of time to secure a much-needed recruit in attack but they do hold an interest in some stars with top-flight experience.
Given Lampard’s links to the Blues, the Belgian could be the most realistic option available, with Batshuayi unlikely to feature in Thomas Tuchel’s plans.
