The midfielder has endured a nightmare spell at Goodison Park since arriving at the club from Mainz in the summer of 2019, owing to niggling injury issues.


Gbamin was allowed to join Russian outfit CSKA Moscow in February on a loan deal until the end of the season, where he was a regular starter.



Although the 26-year-old enjoyed a bright start to life in Russia, he still failed to convince as CSKA Moscow’s Russian Premier Liga campaign ended in a whimper.


And the Russian giants are unlikely to pursue a permanent move for the Everton man ahead of next season.



Gbamin still has two years left on his current deal at Goodison Park but Lampard will only decide whether the midfielder has a part to play under him following the summer break.


The Everton manager is keen on bolstering his midfield and he is likely to take a closer look at Gbamin during pre-season training.



Offloading fringe stars is key to Everton’s recruitment strategy for the upcoming transfer window and it remains to be seen what decision they will take on the midfielder’s future.
