The three Chelsea players opening day opponents Everton reportedly want to sign this summer
Chelsea have been dealt an opening day clash with Frank Lampard’s Everton to kick-off the Premier League this season.
Reports have suggested that the Toffees have been looking at Chelsea players in the transfer window already, with Levi Colwill, Conor Gallagher and Armando Broja all reported to be on their radar, according to Give Me Sport.
Goodison Park has been far from a happy hunting ground for the Blues in recent years, losing their last four games on the blue half of Merseyside.
Last time out, Richarlison’s solitary goal helped Lampard get the better of Thomas Tuchel, kick-starting their charge for survival in the Premier League.
The Toffees are now keen to add to their squad, with reports speculating their interest may turn to Stamford Bridge.
Gallagher excelled with Crystal Palace on loan last season, and Give Me Sport again say that Lampard is keen on looking to bring the 22-year-old to Goodison Park for a season to bolster their midfield options.
While Broja’s loan spell started well, he perhaps didn’t reach the heights of the Englishman, however proved he has the qualities to score goals in the Premier League following a spell with Southampton.
It has been reported Lampard is keen to sit down with the Albanian to discuss his future plans, with the former Blues boss keen to add to his striking options amid speculation Richarlison wants to leave.
19-year-old Levi Colwill is another player who shined on loan from Stamford Bridge last season at Championship side Huddersfield Town.
The Englishman was crucial in the club reaching the play off final, where they fell short to Nottingham Forest in the quest for Premier League promotion.
Everton are one of a number of top flight clubs interested in the young star, with Lampard potentially hoping his Chelsea links can push him up the pecking order.
Tuchel would be smart to look at all three of these players before making a decision on their futures.
Gallagher comfortably showed he had the qualities to become one of the best midfielders in the league, with Broja occupying a position the squad could be lacking in.
Despite Colwill’s young age, centre-back is another role Chelsea are desperate for reinforcements in, and the 19-year-old could stake his claim to be involved in those plans.
