Everton News: Announcement date closer as medical await James Tarkowski in coming days ahead of potential Everton move
As talks continue, a number of outlets, notably The Athletic, are suggesting that Tarkowski is getting closer to being Everton’s first summer acquisition.
Lampard has intimated that he wants to rebuild Everton’s core after his early months at the club were marred by important player injuries.
Yerry Mina and Ben Godfrey both missed a lot of games during the relegation struggle, which ended with the Blues earning Premier League safety with a thrilling win against Crystal Palace in the season’s last game.
Lampard is keen to strengthen his team, and Tarkowski has appeared in more than 30 league games in each of the last five seasons.
After concluding the season with a realistic attitude as the prospect of relegation loomed, the Everton manager is eager to implement more advanced methods.
“If we want to start playing a bit better between the lines, that starts from the back,” Lampard said after the Palace game, “and so we will look at all those things and through the middle of the pitch about how we can work because that’s always the first thing, and then maybe how we can add and improve.”
