Everton considering Viktor Gyokeres transfer as Frank Lampard targets Coventry star to solve striker crisis

, Everton considering Viktor Gyokeres transfer as Frank Lampard targets Coventry star to solve striker crisis

EVERTON are considering a move for Coventry City striker Viktor Gyokeres as Frank Lampard’s striker search continues.

The Toffees have lost their opening two games of the season and are short up top following the sale of Richarlison to Tottenham and another injury to Dominic Calvert-Lewin.

Everton could also be about to lose Anthony Gordon to Chelsea, whose latest bid for the forward was £45million.

Lampard’s sights have now turned to Swedish international Gyokeres, 24, who scored 17 goals in the Championship for Coventry last season and has one in two appearances so far this term – scoring against Sunderland on the opening day.

Gyokeres, who joined Coventry from Brighton last year after a spell on loan, has seven caps and two goals for Sweden.

Brighton striker Neal Maupay is also being considered, but the Toffees face serious competition from Premier League new boys Nottingham Forest for the French striker.

Maupay, 26, has fallen down the pecking order under Graham Potter and, with one year left on his deal, is available for around £15million.

Everton are also tracking Blackburn’s Ben Brereton Diaz, though a number of clubs in the Premier League and Europe are keen on the Chile international.

Speaking at the weekend, Lampard said: “Dominic has been injured for two weeks and it is a five-to-six-week injury, so we have to have a bit of perspective.

“We are not going to be foolish. We are going to try to find the right player that can maybe help us in the short term, but in the long term complement the fact we have Dominic.”

Lampard has looked at Southampton’s Che Adams but Saints chiefs insist that the Scotland international is not for sale.

The former Chelsea manager wants to add more firepower before the visit of Nottingham Forest to Goodison Park on Saturday.
