Everton may not have a free hand in the transfer market and in order to bring players, the Toffees may have to sell first or they risk violating the Profit and Sustainability rules. Selling Nathan Broadhead presents an opportunity for Everton to generate a decent fee which can be reinvested to sign players.

Offloading the players who aren’t in Lampard’s future plans isn’t a bad idea. Everton striker Nathan Broadhead spent last season on loan in League One. The Welsh striker signed a two-year contract last summer before leaving for Sunderland on loan until the end of the season.

He has 27 appearances to his name while playing for the Black Cats and has found the back of the net 13 times this season. He played a key role in Sunderland’s season and was the club’s second-highest goalscorer in a campaign that saw the Black Cats get promoted to the Championship, ending their four-year stay in the third division, and helped his side reach the Carabao Cup quarter-final.

Such performances saw the 24-year-old rewarded with a national call-up for Wales’ international fixtures this summer but an injury forced him to withdraw his name from the Wales national squad.

His stats are all the more impressive because his season was disrupted due to Covid and injury, including a hamstring issue that kept him out for almost three months.

How much will Everton demand for Nathan Broadhead?

Sunderland are interested in signing the forward as per Chronicle Live. this move would suit Broadhead as he has to compete for a spot against the likes of Dominic Calvert-Lewin, Richarlison, Salomon Rondon, and Lewis Dobbin, and hence there is no space for him to play regularly and develop at the Goodison Park.

At Sunderland, he was loved by the fans and played regular football along with Josh Stewart. With Sunderland back in the Championship, they will need reliable players and Broadhead proved to be a reliable forward in the frontline.

Thanks to his spell at the Stadium of Light, he can command a decent transfer fee. The fact that Everton can save around £12.48 million annually by just letting the contracts of Cenk Tosun, Fabian Delph, and Gylfi Sigurðsson expire should be seen as a positive. If the Merseyside club can sell Broadhead for a decent transfer fee then that’d be a cherry on top of an excellent transfer window.
