Everton could form dream duo in deal for Eriksen

Frank Lampard faces one of the most important summer transfer windows in Everton’s recent history, with the club narrowly avoiding relegation from the Premier League last season, the onus is on for massive improvement on the pitch and solid recruitment off it.

The 44-year-old has given the Goodison faithful a lift by securing a deal for defender James Tarkowski, with just an official announcement to be made and with interest in Chelsea trio Conor Gallagher, Armando Broja and Levi Colwill, there could be a flurry of activity on Merseyside soon.

Will Everton make a move for Christian Eriksen?

Yes

Yes

No

No

One move that should be prioritised above all else is a swoop for Danish star Christian Eriksen. The soon-to-be free agent is reportedly mulling over offers from a number of Premier League clubs, with Everton amongst them.

Having made a stunning return to professional football following a cardiac arrest at Euro 2020 when Brentford signed him in January he has had an excellent four months back in the Premier League.

In just 11 league matches, the “world-class” Dane scored once and registered four assists as Brentford performed well and kept their place in the top flight following on from their impressive promotion in 2021.

It isn’t just his goal involvement stats that have been good since his comeback, compared to peers in the big five leagues, Eriksen ranks in the top 1% for assists (0.38 per 90) and shot-creating actions (5.08) while ranking in the top 3% for total shots per match (2.11).

These stats prove he still has the ability to pose a significant attacking threat and this is exactly what Everton require.

Last season, only one player from the Everton squad netted double figures, Richarlison with 11 goals, and with interest in the Brazilian remaining high, he might not even be at the club next season.

Which club did Everton sign Josh King from in the 2021 Jan transfer window?

Eriksen could form a dream duo with Dominic Calvert-Lewin if he did sign for the club, as the English striker would feed off the 30-year-old’s creativity and could well exceed his best season of 21 goals from 2020/2021 with the presence of the attacking midfielder.
