According to TalkSPORT, Chelsea midfielder Billy Gilmour wants to meet Frank Lampard at Everton this summer, as the ex-Chelsea manager looks set to boost his interest in the Scotland international after a disappointing pre-season performance.
Everton fell 4-0 to Minnesota United in the early hours of Thursday morning. Dele Allis missed a tap-in from all of two yards.
Lampard was unsatisfied in his post-match interview, but now he appears to be ready to take action. With Financial Fairplay on the line, the Toffees have only made one signing in James Tarkowski, who was signed for free from Burnley this summer.
Gilmour, who signed for the Blues from Rangers, is interested in reuniting with Lampard, according to TalkSPORT. Now, Gilmour, who earns 43k a week, is keen on reuniting with Lampard.
At Everton, Gilmour wants to reunite with Lampard.
Everton are in need of a player that can stay on the ball and dictate the pace. He struggled at Norwich last season, but Everton will give him the opportunity at a club with more possession.
The Toffees have midfield options with the likes of Allan, Abdoulaye Doucoure, Andre Gomes, and others. But they have lost Donny van de Beek, Doucoure is more attacking, and Both Allan and Gomes have been linked with exits.
Everton have a player Lampard knows well, a player who has the desire and desire to excel and impress. He just needs more game time, and there is no reason why he wouldn't get that at Goodison Park.
