Everton eyeing double midfield raid on Chelsea

Everton are eyeing a double raid on Chelsea.

TalkSPORT says Everton have 'looked at' Chelsea duo Conor Gallagher and Billy Gilmour as they weigh up potential moves for them this summer.

Both players were sent out on loan last season, with Gallagher dazzling at Crystal Palace and Gilmour enduring a more difficult time at Norwich.

Their long-term futures at Stamford Bridge are unclear, and it appears that former Blues hero Frank Lampard, now in charge of the Toffees, could move in for them.

Frank Lampard will look to use his 'connections' at Chelsea to lure Gallagher across to the blue half of Merseyside.

The midfielder picked up Palace's Player of the Year award for his stunning 2021/22 campaign, and chairman Steve Parish has admitted he would like to keep him.

Whether he returns is currently unclear, and other clubs are monitoring his situation.
