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.
Toffees’ thinning defence could cause concern for fans with Ben Godfrey sustaining a fractued fibula and Yerry Mina sidelined with ankle ligament damage. Recent additons of Conor Coady and James Tarkowski will help plug the hole for now.
The club have finally replaced Richarlison with former Brighton-striker Neal Maupay - Richarlison left to join Tottenham in a fee worth up to £60 million. Paris Saint German and former Evertonian Idrissa Gueye has also signed for an undisclosed fee.
As transfer deadline day grinds to a hault, the Toffees’ squad will certainly feel lighter and less bloated with 13 players making their way out the door. Last-minute signing James Garner will impress fans who remember some of his head-turning performances last year in a Nottingham Forest shirt.

Which players have left Everton in the summer transfer window?
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.

Who has joined Everton so far in the summer window?
Everton have had a busy end to the transfer window with assured back-line signings of Coady, Tarkowski and Mcneil. Richarlison’s departure and Calvert-Lewin’s latest injury, means that Everton are worryingly thin up front but Neal Maupay is a safe replacement.
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, 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.
Neal Maupay is the most recent addition to the squad, arriving from Brighton for an undisclosed fee. The French-striker is a proven Premier League targetsman, scoring 26 goals for the Seagulls.
Toffees’ fans will be particularly relieved with the arrival of Neal Maupay after the uncertainity around the replacement of Richarlison.
As the door slams shut on a busy transfer deadline day, Everton have officially completed the signings of Paris Saint German midfielder, Idrissa Gana Gueye for an undisclosed fee and promising Manchester United midfielder James Garner for £15 million.
Here are the full list of players joining the club, and the fees (if applicable) spent:
- James Tarkowski, Burnley, Free-transfer
- Rúben Gonçalo da Silva Nascimento Vinagre, Sporting Lisbon, Season-long loan
- Dwight McNeil, Burnley, Undisclosed fee
- Conor Coady, Wolverhampon Wanderers, Season-long loan
- Amadou Onana, LOSC Lille, £33 million
- Neal Maupay, Brighton, Undisclosed fee
- Idrissa Gana Gueye, Paris Saint German, £5 million
- James Garner, Manchester United, £15 million
