Everton boss Frank Lampard has been tipped to sign at least one Chelsea youngster this summer.
Former Chelsea boss Lampard recently took over at Goodison Park and reports suggest he will target a number of players from his old club when the transfer window opens again.
And journalist Dean Jones believes Conor Gallagher, Armando Broja and Billy Gilmour will be of interest – and that at least one of them will end up joining Lampard at Everton.
Jones told GiveMeSport: “Frank Lampard will keep a close eye on Gilmour, Broja and Gallagher situations at Chelsea over the summer. I’ll be amazed if at least one of them doesn’t join Everton by next season.”
There has been plenty of speculation about the future of midfielder Gallagher, who has been hugely impressive on loan at Crystal Palace this season.
Reports suggest that Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel plans to give him a chance in the Blues’ first team next term.
Meanwhile, Arsenal have been linked with striker Broja, who has caught the eye on loan at Southampton.
The Saints are keen to sign Broja on a permanent deal but look likely to face competition from other clubs at the end of the season.
Midfielder Gilmour has endured a tough spell on loan at Premier League strugglers Norwich.
But the Scot was excellent when given a chance in the Chelsea side under Lampard, who is bound to be keen to take him to Merseyside if the opportunity arises.
