This is latest Everton News with Frank taking a step closer to former TOTTENHAM star player as he looks to fix key Everton midfield problem.
Christian Eriksen, who is a free agent after his contract with Brentford ended at the conclusion of the season, has been linked with a transfer to Everton.
As teams begin their summer planning, the Premier League transfer market will shortly open, and whispers are already dominating headlines.
It will be a crucial couple of months for Frank Lampard at Everton as he attempts to rearrange and develop a team that will keep them out of any relegation battles and drive them back into the top half of the table, where they belong.

Some of the business may be dictated by prospective departures and the need to replace important players, but the club also has a handful of free transfers which the club could capitalise on this summer.
Burnley defender James Tarkowski is being linked with a move, but might Brentford’s Christian Eriksen be an option for the Blues?
According to a story in The Mirror this week, Everton, Tottenham Hotspur, and Manchester United are all interested in signing the Dane.
His contract with Brentford expires at the end of the month, and while the London club is anxious to keep him, he has choices and might be lining up for another Premier League team when the new season begins in August.
Eriksen played with Spurs for seven years before joining Inter Milan in January 2020. What occurred at the Euros the following summer will live long in the memory of football fans, but his eight-month return has been nothing short of incredible, and he’s been a crucial role for Brentford this season.
Due to Serie A restrictions, the 30-year-old was unable to remain at Inter Milan after receiving an implanted cardioverter-defibrillator following his cardiac arrest, and he was discharged in December of last year. In January, he joined Thomas Frank’s side and assisted in their escape.
Eriksen scored one goal and added four assists in his 11 Premier League games in the second half of the season. His goal against Chelsea in a 4-1 win in April was his first in club football in almost a year.
Any questions about his fitness were swiftly dispelled, as he has only missed one matchday squad since his debut in late February and has played over 900 minutes.
He also had a remarkable total at Inter, scoring eight goals and assisting three times in just 60 games across all competitions.
Everton’s midfield is in desperate need of reinforcements this summer, with injuries limiting availability and others’ futures uncertain.
While Eriksen by himself is unlikely to be the answer, his arrival, together with that of a more defensively minded player, would provide more choices for a solid core with the creative flair required to embrace a more modern tactical approach.
Eriksen may not suit the ‘young and eager’ profile that Lampard is looking for, but he has Premier League and European experience and will still feel like he has a lot to show – and as a free agent, he’d be a decent buy. It’s no wonder that the Premier League’s most powerful teams are battling for his signing.
If rumors are to be believed, Everton would have to fend off interest from Tottenham and Manchester United. However, it appears that finding the ideal match will be crucial in Eriksen’s choice this summer.
“I don’t believe that certain football players can just pick and choose between teams,” he stated last month. “There are various variables that come into play.” Many clubs, on the other hand, require that one’s path be seen first.
“I have a variety of offers and possibilities that we are reviewing before making a selection.” I’d like to play in the Champions League once again. I understand how enjoyable it is, but it isn’t necessary for me.”
