Everton are ready to join the race to sign Donny van de Beek from Manchester United on the recommendation of Frank Lampard.

The Chelsea legend stands to be named as Rafa Benitez’s successor, after a chaotic search for the Spaniard’s replacement came to an end on Friday night.

Vitor Pereira appeared to be the front-runner, but the impending arrival of the former Porto and Fenerbahce boss received a furious backlash from an already unhappy fan base, who were very skeptical about the decision to name Bentiez for the summer due to his connections to Liverpool. .

Lampard impressed during another interview and will now be tasked with encouraging a club that has slipped dangerously close to the relegation line after a disastrous series of results.

The 43-year-old is struggling a bit after being sacked by Chelsea 12 months ago, and according to Fabrizio Romano, he already has ideas for who he wants to include at the end of the transfer window.

Van de Beek has again played a small role at Old Trafford this season and seems to be surpassing the demands of Ralf Rangnick as he only started two games since the German replaced Ole Gunnar Solskjær.

The former Ajax star had been interesting to Valencia, but the Spanish club have dropped out of the race, leaving Crystal Palace as Everton’s main rivals to pick up the 24-year-old.

According to Sky Sports, Palace increased their interest in the United midfielder after Gunners hero Dennis Bergkamp – who is Van de Beek’s father-in-law – contacted his former team-mate Patrick Vieira to discuss a possible deal.

Regardless of his final destination, former United star Dimitar Berbatov believes it is time for the Dutch national team player to find a club that will play against him on a regular basis.

He said: ‘Any move that gives Donny van de Beek the opportunity to play is a good move for him.

– It does not work for the Dutchman at United, and it does not matter who the manager is, he is constantly on the bench and does not play enough minutes to get in shape and form.

“It’s best for him to follow Anthony Martial and go to the club to go and play somewhere else.”
