Everton still interested in Broja and Gallagher

Dean Jones has dropped an exciting Everton transfer update that could give supporters a much-needed boost.

What’s the news?

Transfer Focus

Jones was speaking to GIVEMESPORT about the club’s interest in Chelsea duo Conor Gallagher and Armando Broja:

“There’s no actual change since the end of the season, but they’re still interested,” said Jones.

“I think there’s, to be honest, a certain expectation that these players that were on loan last season won’t actually make the cut at Chelsea.

“Gallagher’s got the best chance, but we have to wait and see how much of an opportunity he actually gets in pre-season and whether he can convince [Thomas] Tuchel to stay in and around that squad, but Broja is more than likely to be on the market and available.”

Any move could cost the club a considerable amount of money with Gallagher believed to be rated at £50m and Broja at £57.8m.

Frank Lampard will love the news

Everton requires another striker and a player who can put a bit of bite back into the Everton midfield, with Broja and Gallagher fitting the bill perfectly.

Should Everton sign Broja?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Although by the sounds of it, Lampard might have to pursue other midfield options if Gallagher – who scored eight Premier League goals and registered five assists on loan at Crystal Palace last season – will be given a shot by Tuchel in pre-season.

Broja netted six league goals last season whilst on loan at Southampton, and at just 20 years old, he could fulfil his potential at Everton under Lampard, who has a penchant for developing young players.

One major stumbling block could be the fee, but they’d be helped by whether or not the club receives the £50m plus they are asking for Brazilian Richarlison this summer, as Tottenham remains interested.

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

£57.8m sounds excessive for a striker who has had a semi-decent season in the Premier League and Lampard could maybe use his Chelsea connections to arrange a potential loan move as he aims to redirect funds elsewhere.

Either way, he’d be delighted to bring him to Goodison Park over the summer.
