Report: Everton have offered James Tarkowski a £90,000-a-week deal
Everton have offered James Tarkowski a £90,000-a-week contract, with The Telegraph reporting that the Toffees are now leading the race to sign the centre-back.
Frank Lampard’s men can now look forward to another Premier League campaign. Everton ensured that they were safe ahead of the final day of the season.
The Telegraph reports that Everton are unlikely to spend big over the coming months. So it is little surprise that the Toffees are looking to wrap up a deal for a player about to become a free agent.
Tarkowski is set to leave Burnley. Of course, his time at Turf Moor ended on a sour note as the Clarets were relegated to the Championship.
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.
