Report: 20-year-old is now happy to leave Chelsea this summer, PL club want to sign him
Everton reportedly want to sign Chelsea youngster Tino Anjorin this summer.
According to 90min, Premier League rivals Everton are lining up a move for the 20-year-old Blues midfielder in this current transfer window.
It is understood the Merseyside club are pushing to get him on a permanent basis, but Chelsea want to sort out a loan deal.
The report adds Anjorin is “happy” to leave Stamford Bridge this summer and make a move to Everton if a deal can be finalised between the clubs.
Everton want Tino Anjorin
It sounds like Everton boss Frank Lampard may be asking for a favour from his former employers Chelsea to obtain an exciting young prospect.
Anjorin, who’s currently part of the travelling Chelsea squad in the United States for pre-season, has a lot of potential.
The attacking midfielder spent time out on loan last season with both Lokomotiv Moscow and Huddersfield Town, albeit an injury did disrupt his progress.
He’s played just five first-team games for Chelsea so far since coming through the academy, with only one appearance coming in the Premier League. Therefore, a spell next season at Goodison Park could be a good move for the progress and development in his career.
Described as “remarkable” in the past by fellow Chelsea prospect Levi Colwill, Anjorin is a box-to-box midfielder with a lot of excitement around him.
Agree to loan
With three years still remaining on Anjorin’s contract at Stamford Bridge, Chelsea should try sort out a loan for him in the 2022/23 season.
The Englishman’s a physical presence and great with his feet at the ball, so it will be interesting to see how he fares with regular Premier League minutes.
He can take inspiration from how Conor Gallagher got on last season during a loan with Crystal Palace.
