Frank Lampard intended to raid Wolves and entice player Leander Dendoncker to Everton, according to Fabrizio Romano on Twitter. The Belgian ace might be given a discounted contract.
Dendoncker, 27, is now serving the final year of his Molineux contract. That is, following four seasons of standout play for the Midlands club, whether it be in the heart of defence, on the right, or in central midfield.
If he declines to agree to a new deal, the 29-year-old might have to be sold this summer. In fact, if Wolves want to get paid for the former Anderlecht giant, they will need to make a profit.
According to Romano, Dendoncker is reportedly a target for the Toffees’ manager, Frank Lampard. The fact that Wolves have the option to give Dendoncker a one-year contract extension may prove vital in Everton’s pursuit of the Wolves player.
Everton do have choices in the middle of the park, but in all likelihood, only a few of them will be used. Allan has had difficulty while playing at Goodison Park, and he might move back to Serie A.
Dendoncker would be a fantastic addition. He will not only give the Toffees some much-needed sharpness in midfield, but also give Everton cover at centre back. He might be an incredibly affordable signing.
