Everton transfer news 2022/2023: latest confirmed summer signings and departures including Amadou Onana

The club recently confirmed the signing of rising-talent Amadou Onana but are yet to replace Brazilian forward Richarlison

As Everton kick off their 2022/2023 campaign, the Toffees’ squad still has a couple of gaping holes to fill.

Everton have been patient so far as the club look to bounce back from a tough 2021/2022 season. With a couple of astute signings already in the squad, Lampard is hoping for a better start to this term.

Chelsea’s trip to Everton spelt trouble for the Toffees’ defence as Ben Godfrey sustained a fractued fibula, ruling him out until November. Meanwhile, teammate Yerry Mina limped off with ankle ligament damage.

Recent additons of Conor Coady and James Tarkowski will help the injury-ridden defence. However, Everton will still need to strengthen up top and find a replacement for Richarlison.

The Toffees’ squad will certainly feel lighter and less bloated this season, with seven players making their way out the door. Lampard still has a month to focus on key areas and the recent signing of Lille midfielder, Amadou Onana, is certainly a step in the right direction.

Which players have left Everton in the summer transfer window?

Richarlison joins Tottenham in a deal worth up to £60 million

Everton have seen an extensive list of players leave the club this summer.

Richarlison will be the biggest loss for Frank Lampard. The 25-year-old transferred down south to Tottenham Hotspur for a deal worth up to £60 million.

The forward’s 10 goals were crucial to Everton’s Premier League survival as star striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin missed the majority of the Premier League season through injury.

Cenk Tusan, Fabian Delph, and Gylfi Sigurðsson cost the club a combined £82 million. They have all left for free this summer.

Jonjoe Kenny - who spent five years on loan to four different clubs - has left Everton on a free transfer. The 25-year-old defender struggled to compete for a first team spot and has now completed a permanent move away from the club to join Bundesliga team, Hertha BSC (Hertha Berlin)

After joining for a fee of £27 million in 2018, Tusan has left on a permanent deal - joining Super Lig club, Beşiktaş J.K. During his time at the toffees, the Turkish striker played second fiddle to Calvert-Lewin and Moise Kean.

Delph and Sigurðsson have both left Eveton as free agents. Delph’s contract expired on June 30 while Sigurðsson was released by the club this summer after playing his last game in May 2021.

Here are the full list of players departing the club, and the fees (if applicable) received:

  • Richarlison, Tottenham Hotspur, £52 million
  • Cenk Tusan,  Beşiktaş J.K, Free transfer
  • Jonjoe Kenny, Hertha BSC, Free transfer 
  • Fabian Delph, Free Agent 
  • Gylfi Sigurðsson, Free Agent 

Who has joined Everton so far in the summer window?

James Tarkowski joins Everton on a free from relegated Burnley

Everton have been fairly quiet on the transfer front this summer window. While Coady, Tarkowski and Mcneil are welcome additions, Richarlison’s departure and Calvert-Lewin’s latest injury, means that Everton are worryingly thin up front.

Everton’s first signing this summer window was ex-Burnley defender James Tarkowski. The free-transfer is an astute bit of business from Lampard, as the established centre-back has made 194 Premier League appearances and is still on the right side of 30.

They have also purchased Ruben Vinagre on loan from Sporting Lisbon, offering some well-needed cover for Mykolenko at left-back.

Former Burnley midfielder, Dwight McNeil, joins the toffees for an undisclosed fee. The winger started all 38 games for the Clarets last season and registered seven goals and 17 assists during his time at the club.

Everton have completed signing of Wolves defender, Conor Coady, on a season long loan. The merseyside-born defender fell out of faith with Wolves manger Bruno Large, despite spending four years as club captain.

After personal terms broke down with West Ham last week, Everton have been quick to hijack £33m deal for Lille and Belgium star, Amadou Onana. The 6ft4 midfielder could appear in either a pivot or a more advanced midfield role.
