Everton are not looking to spend big in January despite the prospect of another relegation battle, Sources told Football Insider.
Owner Farhad Moshiri is reluctant to undertake another costly winter window overhaul amid doubts about Goodison Park’s long-term intentions.
The Everton management believes that coach Lampard has received good support in the summer window, and the signings have improved the team.
The Merseysiders spent around £70m in the latest transfer window and also brought in high-paid free-to-play James Tarkowski and expensive loan signings Connor Cody and Ruben Vinagre.
Richarlison was sold to Tottenham for £50m, but Everton managed to keep another of their key assets, Dominic Calvert-Lewin.
The most expensive of their summer imports is Amadou Onana, who joins a Report £33m deal from French club Lille.
football insider It was revealed earlier this week (November 15) that after internal discussions, Moshiri and the board decided not to sack Lampard.
One possibility is a surprise bid for Marcelo Bielsa, but that has been ruled out, with the club set to retain the former Chelsea boss after the World Cup.
The pressure is mounting on Lampard after a lackluster start to the 2022-23 season, which left them just one point outside the relegation zone heading into the mid-season World Cup offseason.
Everton are second-to-last in the Premier League for goals this season – talisman Calvert-Lewin’s constant injuries are certainly a mitigating factor for their lack of effectiveness.
The England international has made just four starts in the league this season, scoring just once.
The Toffees will return to action on December 26 against fellow Wolves.
