Everton Among Clubs Hoping To Land This Napoli Winger: Dream Option For Lampard?

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, Marca mentioned that Everton are among clubs hoping to land Napoli winger Hirving Lozano this summer. It has been revealed that the Toffees could face competition for Bayern Munich, Red Bull Leipzig and Manchester United in pursuit of the Mexican sensation.

Lozano’s Recent Form At The Diego Armando Maradona Stadium

Lozano has struggled to be productive with his performances at Naples this season as he has failed to be decisive in the final third. The 27-year-old has participated in seven matches for Napoli during this campaign, picking up just one assist in various competitions.

Still, the Mexico international deserves a lot of credit for averaging 2.2 shots, 1.2 key passes, 1.0 crosses and 1.3 dribbles per 90 minutes in Serie A. However, he needs to be a bit more careful when interchanging possession with his teammates in the final third, as evidenced by his pass success rate of 71.7% in the Italian first division (stats via whoscored).

The Mexico City-born sensation’s current contract with Napoli will run out in the summer of 2024. Thus, Everton might have a chance of landing him on the cheap at the end of this season.

Will Lozano Be A Dream Option For Everton Boss Frank Lampard?

Lozano is a technically gifted footballer who can complete some dangerous dribbles with the ball in the opponent’s half. He has got the vision to cut open the opposition defence with an incisive pass in the final third and can strike the ball well from long range. Lozano is primarily a right-sided wide player but can also play on the left flank or as a secondary striker down the middle if needed. However, the Mexico international has to figure out a way to be more clinical if he wants to be a success story in the Premier League.

Lozano will no doubt enhance the quality of Everton head coach Frank Lampard‘s first XI and could even help the Toffees challenge for a top-eight finish in the Premier League over the next few seasons.

On his day, Lozano can be a real game-changer, so the Merseyside club should think about trying everything they can to lure the Mexican wing wizard to Goodison Park. All in all, the Napoli star will be a dream option for Lampard to consider next summer. However, only time will tell whether Lozano has what it takes to cope with the physical nature and high intensity of English football.
