Frank Lampard‘s frenetic summer is likely to continue right up until transfer deadline day, but the former Chelsea manager will be happy that a loan deal for Ludovic Ajorque is all but agreed. The 28-year-old striker, who has an opposing presence in the box standing at 6 foot 6 inches, will sign a 12 month contract with the Goodison Park outfit this week, departing Strasbourg on a short team deal.

It is understood that The Toffees will be paying Strasbourg around £650,000 for the privilege of taking Ajorque on loan, and will pay the entirety of the player’s £25,000 salary for the duration of the spell.

Ajorque has scored 45 goals in 122 games for the Ligue 1 side, and prior to that had spells playing for Clermont and Angers, and sandwiched between those two periods two loan seasons with Poire-Sur-Vie and Lucon.

Everton are looking for attacking reinforcements having already sold Richarlison to Tottenham Hotspur, and with the ongoing injury worries of Dominic Calvert-Lewin, who missed the season opener last weekend.

The Toffees will be busy up until the end of the transfer window with a reported four new faces expected to arrive at the club.
