'My finishing is improving': Everton player says he's got much better at shooting and wants to score more now

Everton kick off their Premier League campaign against Wolves in less than a week’s time.

It’s an opportunity for Frank Lampard’s side to pull away from the relegation zone against another struggling side.

One of his key players, Amadou Onana, has spoken to Sky Sports News about his brief time at the club.

Onana arrived from Lille in the summer and was immediately thrust into the side.

He’s formed a brilliant partnership in midfield with Idrissa Gueye, allowing Alex Iwobi to sit further forward.

His form for the Toffees earned him a place in Belgium’s World Cup squad.

After coming off the bench against Canada, he started their defeat to Morocco.

Unfortunately, he picked up bookings in both games, meaning he missed their crunch tie against Croatia.

That was where his and the Red Devils’ involvement in the competition ended as Belgium massively underperformed.

It’s allowed the 21-year-old to fully prepare for the restart of the Premier League with his new club.

And Onana has said his finishing has improved so much since joining his new club.

The midfielder is yet to get off the mark for Everton, but will have the opportunity to do so on Boxing Day.

Onana says his finishing has improved so much

Speaking to Sky Sports, Onana said: “I feel my finishing is improving. I’m confident because hard work always pays off.

“It’s what my whole career has been about – I’ve worked really hard to get to where I am today.

“It’s an area now I’ve been working on as I want to score more.”

There aren’t many better midfielders to learn from when it comes to scoring from midfield than Frank Lampard.

Lampard has admitted he’s not exactly sure what Onana’s best role in the team is right now.

If Onana can continue to improve his finishing, he may find himself played in a more advanced position.

The tenacious Belgian is a brilliant ball carrier, and should be more effective in the final third.

He’s improved a lot during his short time in England, but clearly has massive potential.

It’s up to Lampard to extract that potential in the coming weeks and months with Everton’s Premier League status at stake.
