Frank Lampard Really wants to make a deal happen between toffees and Chelsea in coming days as the club really need to fill up richarlison space.
As Everton looks to replace Richarlison this summer, Frank Lampard is personally spearheading the Toffees’ efforts to recruit Chelsea striker Armando Broja.
The Evening Standard reports that the English manager is eager to recruit the Albanian player as Lampard’s previous club looks to offload Broja this transfer window.
The 20-year-old prodigy had a breakthrough season in the Premier League last year after a loan stint at Southampton.
According to the article, Broja, who might be available for as cheap as £30 million this summer, is also being aggressively pursued by Newcastle United and West Ham.

However, the attacker has already travelled to the United States to join up with the Chelsea, according to a recent report from the Athletic.
Although there hasn’t been much progress on Broja’s departure from Stamford Bridge, Lampard’s personal attempts to bring the Chelsea striker to Everton might be a major factor in the Premier League team securing the player. The Toffees are in dire need of a new attacker.
Richarlison’s departure has complicated matters for Everton, even though Dominic Calvert-Lewin appears to be staying with the team. The Brazilian was the club’s leading scorer last season as the Liverpool team just avoided a stunning relegation down to the Championship.
If Lampard is successful in his ambition to recruit the Chelsea star, Broja might be a fantastic acquisition for Everton; nevertheless, the striker’s presence could cause the English coach to reconsider how he plans to use him next season, reverting to an almost old-school style of play.

Everton is no stranger to the 4-4-2 style, but with the addition of Broja, the system may be brought back with the Albanian leading the line alongside Calvert-Lewin. Given their toughness, this striking duo might be tough for any Premier League team to manage.
In addition, if Lampard can acquire Broja this summer, it may be the beginning of serious transformation at Everton. Lampard wants to revive the legendary English team and put them back in the top divisions.
