Everton midfield quartet leaving the club ‘wouldn’t be a shock’, says reporter

Liverpool Echo reporter Matt Jones has suggested four Everton midfielders could leave Goodison Park in this summer’s transfer window

Andre Gomes, Jean-Philippe Gbamin, Allan and Fabian Delph cost Everton £77million.

However, with Frank Lampard due to undertake an overhaul at Goodison this summer, Jones suggested their future was very uncertain.

Writing for the Liverpool Echo on Friday [26 May]Jones said: “It wouldn’t be a shock if all of the aforementioned quartets left the club before the start of the 2022/23 season.”

The figures Everton have paid for these midfielders highlights the problems Everton have had in recent years in terms of recruiting players.

Signing Gbamin for £25m and Gomes for £22m are just two examples where the Toffees could have invested in a much smarter way.

This summer, the Toffees will try to revolutionize the way they recruit players.

Lampard will look for value instead of spending large transfer fees on underperforming top earners.

The £25m they invested in Gbamin could have brought in three or four young league players who could have been developed.

Lampard will be looking to free up space and wages to give him the best chance to shape the team in his own way.

The first thing the Everton boss should do is get rid of the failed players currently residing in his squad.
