Report: Everton now want to sign rival club's captain, he's already called them a 'top club'
The sweeping centre-back has three years left on his £16,500 per week deal at Molineux, and Wolves would like to keep Coady at the club.
The arrival of Nathan Collins for £20.5m could see a reduction in playing time for Coady, and Lampard is keen to swoop in and pick up the defender.
Everton interested in signing Coady
Coady would be joining an Everton squad that already consists of five senior centre-backs.
Coady has more than 150 Premier League appearances under his belt, and Everton’s interest suggests Lampard is keen to permanently switch to three at the back this season.
Bringing in Coady would be a good signing if Lampard is looking for more leaders in the squad.
And, encouragingly, he’s already described his potential suitors as a ‘top club’ – despite his obvious allegiances to Liverpool.
However, Everton’s more pressing concern will be their lack of attacking options, after confirmation that Dominic Calvert-Lewin will miss the start of the season.
