The Toffees have yet to win a Premier League game this season. They had one of the worst attacks yet, and they struggled in possession. In any of their first four games, Everton has not had more possession than their opponent. They are currently just above the relegation zone, but Arthur Melo could improve their chances this season. Melo is a solid defensive midfielder who can play at any level and help Everton solve their possession problems. He is currently a Juventus player and would cost the club more than £65 million. He played in 20 Serie A matches last season, helping his club finish fourth and qualify for the Champions League. The Brazilian is an excellent passer and defender. He has excellent ball skills and can quickly feed the attacking midfielders. Melo fits in perfectly with Lampard’s new defensive scheme, which includes new defenders like James Tarkowksi. He has yet to appear in a match this season, so a transfer would be beneficial to all parties involved. He has played against top competition in both Serie A and the Champions League. Melo played in six Champions League games last season and seven the year before. He is a seasoned veteran with plenty of upside and potential considering he is only 26 years old. Everton must act quickly to reverse their losing streak. Despite not having had a particularly difficult schedule, the club is currently ranked 18th in the table. It is critical that the team address their attacking and midfield issues, which begins with the signing of Melo. Do you think Lampard can pull off the signing?
