was eager to have a double signing from Everton that would include Gordon and Richarlison, finally settling for the £60m deal for the Brazilian since the Toffees resisted their advances. In addition, Newcastle is said to be interested in signing the winger.

Everton's website


"He's worked for it, you have to earn the number 10.

"With the 10, it has a bit of magic to it, a bit of flare and Anthony's got that, but he's got it in his own style.

"I don't want him to be doing pirouettes on the halfway line, we need him doing what he was doing last year, plus goals and assists, which Anthony is so hungry to do.

"He's earned it, absolutely. A link to the crowd, a link to the fans, a local boy – he gives everything, a great talent.

"He's going nowhere, he's our player. That was a hugely important thing for me, he's the sort of player we want to build to go forward with and I'm delighted that he's got his

number 10 but now I want him to continue to earn it."


Lampard is also eager to see the England international and


hero Dominic Calvert-Lewin, who had an injury-hit campaign, bounce back in the coming season.

"I couldn't have been happier for a player to score that goal that goes down in Everton history. You get goosebumps when you think about it, it's just an amazing goal,"

Lampard added.

"I saw Dominic in my time at the club striving, doing everything to be fit. The powerhouse that we saw in the last games of the season – that's Dominic. Great lad, great talent, a dream to work with. A fully fit Dominic is something for us to get excited about this season."
