Everton Remain Interested In This Talented Winger: What Will He Add To Lampard’s Side?

Must Read

A 26-year-old sports writer and an aspiring football coach who has road-tripped across the Scottish Highlands, but has never been to Wales. Sucker for cliff-hangers and catchy riffs. Known to be a grunger and not to be a stranger.

In a recent report, AS mentioned that Everton remain interested in Adnan Januzaj who is available as a free agent this summer. It is understood that the Toffees could face competition in the form of Los Angeles Galaxy and West Ham United in pursuit of the Belgian wide player.

Januzaj’s Decent Form At The Reale Arena Last Season

Januzaj put in a run of impressive displays as a key member of Real Sociedad’s attack in the previous campaign but sometimes struggled to be clinical in front of the opposition goal. The 27-year-old scored five goals and secured three assists in 44 matches for the Spanish club last season on all fronts.

The Belgian sensation deserves a lot of credit for averaging 1.3 shots, 1.0 key passes and 1.4 dribbles per game in the Premier League. However, he needs to work on improving his ball distribution in the final third, as evidenced by his pass completion rate of 75.6% in top-flight football (stats via whoscored).

At the moment, Januzaj is a free agent which makes him a good cost-effective option for the Toffees to pursue before the end of this summer transfer window.

What Will Januzaj Add To Everton Boss Frank Lampard’s Side?

Januzaj has decent pace under his belt and can complete a few promising dribbles with the ball out on the wide areas. He can chip in by scoring a handful of crucial goals for his team and has got the vision to play some decisive passes on the attacking end of the field. Januazaj is versatile enough to play anywhere across the frontline. He mainly operates as a right-sided winger but can even fill in as a left-winger or as a centre-forward up top if his manager tells him to do so.

At 27, the Belgian international is playing at the top of his game and is well-equipped to make an instant impact at Goodison Park if Everton can find a way to win the chase for his services this month. He could even serve as a decent replacement for Anthony Gordon if the Merseyside club decide to sell their young forward this summer.

We can expect Januzaj to add some goals and creativity to Frank Lampard’s attack. Furthermore, he could help the Toffees get back to challenging for a European spot in the Premier League over the next few years.

With all things considered, Lampard would be wise to offer Januzaj a chance to showcase his skills once again in England where he previously shone as a youngster during his spell at Manchester United.
