Everton have had a disappointing season so far with the side falling into a difficult relegation battle which has resulted in speculation surrounding the futures of many players, and now a new update has emerged on two key players in the team.
When asked about the likely future of the pair n an interview, Jones responded:
“I think it’s almost certain that they both go, to be honest with you, certainly if they get relegated. He (Calvert-Lewin) is a player that they know they could get £60 million to £70 million for.”
The rumours that the Toffees boss could lose two of his most important goal threats next season will surely leave him frustrated especially if he manages to complete the great escape from relegation and stays in the Premier League.
Although the pair could surely generate a large amount of money for Everton if they were to secure moves to other clubs this summer, the hole they will leave in the attack would be hard work for Lampard to fill.
Richarlison has found his shooting boots in the latter stages of the season which has been crucial for the Toffees in their pursuit of safety, scoring four times in the last seven league appearances which has taken his current goal tally to nine goals and four assists in all competitions.
Dominic Calvert-Lewin on the other hand hasn’t had the opportunity to make the impact we have been accustomed to seeing at Goodison Park as he has been plagued with numerous injuries throughout the campaign.
The striker has only made 15 appearances, scoring three goals and contributing one assist, and has not scored a goal since August 2021. Since a long term quad injury and broken toe kept him out of the team until the turn of the year, he has failed in his recent performances to find his goal-scoring form.
With that being said, Lampard will just need to focus on securing Premier League football next season before concerning himself with transfer outgoings this summer, as the two varying outcomes could make a huge difference to how the club moves forward.
