English Premier League side, Everton have been urged to prioritize the signing of English-born Ghanaian defender Tariq Lamptey this summer ahead of Max Aarons.
This is according to ex-Premier League goalkeeper Paddy Kenny who believes the Norwich City teenager won’t be the best option when compared to the Brighton sensation.
“They could be making a mistake,” Paddy told Football Insider when commenting on Everton’s pursuit of Max Aarons.
The ex-goalkeeper continued, “Would he [Max Aarons] want to stay at Norwich after they’ve just been promoted? It would be difficult for him to leave.
“But he is a Championship player, he’s not Premier League at the moment.
“It is a lot of money to pay for a player who has just been promoted but has only played one season in the Premier League.
“Lamptey could be the one. He’s a very good player. Everton are hit-and-miss. You don’t know what you’re going to get from them each week.
“They need to start getting a little bit more consistent. A right-back, you’d think, would be part of that.”
Currently, Tariq Lamptey is out injured and could possibly not play again until the end of the 2020/2021 football season.
He displayed impressive form in the first round of the English Premier League campaign and has been tipped to develop into a top player.
