Taylor is a big fan of the centre-forward.
He told the Sunday Sun: â€œHe has done a magnificent job for Southampton over the past few seasons. His goals were a big reason they got to the Premier League. He was particularly good last season when they came up from the Championship.
â€œI have always been a fan of Lambert. Heâ€™s been a really good centre-forward throughout his career.
â€œIâ€™ll tell you something about him because I have watched him closely, I think he is so under-rated, one of the most under-rated players in the country. That has always been the case with him for some reason."
