Up on Merseyside, with transfer deadline day upon us, it would seem that Everton are looking towards Stamford Bridge with regards to acquiring a centre-back.

Last season, the Toffees were privileged to have Kurt Zouma on a season-long loan.

However, as we’ve suspected for several weeks now and as confirmed by The Liverpool Echo, Frank Lampard wants the popular 24-year-old centre-back to remain at Stamford Bridge this season, feeling that the defender has a crucial role to play at Stamford Bridge this season.

With that being the case, The Sun, are reporting that Everton are now looking towards acquiring the services of Fikayo Tomuri.

Last season, 21-year-old Tomuri impressed on his season-long loan deal at Derby County where, incidentally, he was managed by a certain Frank Lampard.

However, whether a deal can be done, especially with David Luiz, chelsea-stunned-by-latest-transfer-development, set to head off to Arsenal, remains to be seen.

Lampard will be reluctant to place himself in a situation whereby he’s struggling, numbers-wise, for central defensive options.

Here at Vital Chelsea, we’ll certainly be interested to see which way this one goes.

  • Lamps is clueless as soon as he arrives let him Luiz leaves for Arsenal I wonder if he’ll survive after JANUARY

  • He has no difficult decision. Luiz is leaving so the young players will remain. Luiz I think feared for the future. Christensen and Kurt are two powerdul young players. Add Rudiger. He has been regular in the German National team. Just like Kurt with France. So , Luiz couldn’t stand the shame of seeing these young fast and good game readers play while he was on the bench.

    You are just skeptical. Lampard is holding a strong army. You will be flabbergasted by the success of that guy. Come the end of the season mark my words.

    Year I year out Chelsea has been doing weird business and changing managers, yet success has been following them. Luiz isn’t a shocker. Neither is Hazard
