Everton have now moved into pole position to sign Tarkowski, with Aston Villa also interested. The report claims that the Toffees have put a £90,000-a-week contract on the table.

Tarkowski meanwhile, is looking to resolve his future before he goes on holiday.

Lampard sees the defender as the perfect addition to his ranks.

Everton have offered James Tarkowski a contract

Everton have had real problems at the heart of their backline this season, largely due to injury. And it is definitely an area that Lampard needs to improve heading into next year.

So it would be a boost if he can address that without spending any money on a transfer fee.

Tarkowski is an ‘outstanding‘ player. He has nearly played 200 games in the Premier League. And he has made a couple of appearances for his country.

It could be a really tricky window for Everton if they are not able to spend much money. So finding potential gems like a free transfer for Tarkowski could made a real difference heading into next year.
