Chelsea might reportedly cash in on Everton’s need for revenue by making a move for Amadou Onana.

According to the Telegraph, Onana is under inspection from the powers at Stamford Bridge, who could attempt to sign him before the end of the month.

Everton’s sticky situation makes their squad extremely vulnerable to being picked apart by the Premier League vultures in January.

A run of rotten results under Frank Lampard plunged the Toffees into the relegation places.

Their latest beating, a 2-0 defeat to West Ham United last weekend, was the final nail in Lampard’s coffin.

The former Chelsea manager and midfielder received the sack yesterday, leaving the side joint-bottom of the division with Southampton on points.

Amadou Onana and a potential move to Chelsea

Many of the players he left behind might sense an opportunity to utilise this mess as a means of escape from Goodison Park.

The club themselves may also see a silver lining in this scenario, in that they could seriously raise some profit through sales.

One of those who could be sacrificed is Onana, who only joined Everton last summer from Lille for £33m.

But his ‘unique’ abilities and age make the 21-year-old an enticing prospect for the interested parties looking in.

Chelsea are certainly in the market for someone of Onana’s profile; a strong, powerful central midfielder who can add ammunition to the attack as well.

Maybe Frank can do us a favour and help Graham Potter pluck the Belgian international from Merseyside.
