Everton will not go for Chelsea duo this summer


Everton have zero intentions of signing Chelsea duo Ross Barkley and Michy Batshuayi in the transfer window this summer.

Frank Lampard is not too keen on landing the two players from his former club this summer in the window. Everton will soon sign the likes of Idrissa Gueye from PSG among the others that the club has already signed.

With Chelsea hoping to offload some of their players this summer, Barkley and Batshuayi were linked to a move to Everton. The Toffees are exploring the possibility to sign Billy Gilmour instead in the transfer window.

Everton want Chelsea player Billy Gilmour

Both Batshuayi and Barkley have hardly got any game time under Lampard during the gaffer’s stint with Chelsea as manager. Therefore, it is only normal that the Blues legend would not go all in for the duo this summer.

However, the Chelsea boss hopes to land Gilmour from the Blues instead of the other two in the transfer window. Having spent a significant amount of time with Chelsea, the Toffees boss could use that to his advantage to sign Gilmour.

According to Alex Crook (via GiveMeSport), Lampard could use his ‘excellent’ relationship with the club to initiate the transfer. He said-

He’s got that relationship. He gave him his debut at Chelsea, probably played his best football under Lampard.

He had a pretty difficult time at Norwich last year. I think that relationship could be important, and I wonder if Chelsea might even consider selling him permanently.

 I wouldn’t rule it out.

As for Ross Barkley, Everton considers the player as not suitable for the environment and instead want Gueye this summer. Lampard believes that Gueye would be a ‘low-risk’ deal for the club and would be a better move in the window.

The club will soon make the transfers possible as they are pushing to land them at Goodison Park this season
