Frank Lampard has dropped exciting Everton transfer claim ahead of tomorrow's match

Everton manager Frank Lampard has told the fanbase that the signing of a new striker “will happen” this summer.

The Toffees are looking to bolster their attacking options ahead of the deadline next Thursday.

Everton have already parted company with Richarlison, while Anthony Gordon is apparently on Chelsea’s radar.

In addition, Dominic Calvert-Lewin has been on the sidelines.

But ahead of Everton’s Premier League trip to Brentford on Saturday, Lampard effectively guaranteed that the Toffees will sign a new forward.

BBC Sport shared quotes from his press conference in which he was asked how he’d feel if the club failed to land a new striker before the deadline.

“It will happen,” replied the Everton boss.

“And we have Dominic Calvert Lewin coming back. As I say so but it’s an area that we’re well aware of.

“Then the last thing we wanted to do is the last thing that we should do, is bring a player in on a whim or in a rush, there’s not going to improve the squad.

“Now and generally and I think those those are clear things if there have been any mistakes previously, we don’t want to make those.

“We want to work together joined up to make sure we make the right decisions for the club in the right areas. And it’s really important that we do that.”

Everton are reportedly in talks over signing Brighton’s Neal Maupay and Blackburn’s Ben Brereton Diaz.

The Toffees are also apparently eyeing Bournemouth’s Jaidon Anthony.
