MANCHESTER UNITED ace Anthony Elanga is being targeted by Everton ahead of the January transfer window, reports suggest.
However, the Toffees will be up against other Premier League clubs who are also eyeing Elanga, 20.
According to the Daily Mail, manager Frank Lampard wants a new striker and winger to ease his side’s relegation fears.
The Merseysiders kept tabs on Elanga during the summer transfer window and are keen on rekindling their interest next month.
However, Everton will have to work within the loan market and will have to overcome a bidding war with other Prem rivals.
Elanga is understood to be frustrated with his role at United due to a lack of first-team football.
It looked like the winger would have been getting more opportunities with Jadon Sancho falling out of contention.
The Red Devils also lost Cristiano Ronaldo before the 2022 World Cup due to an explosive interview in which he blasted the club from top to bottom.
However, manager Erik ten Hag appears to prefer Alejandro Garnacho in the wings over the Sweden international.
Plus, the Manchester giants are also looking to add some more firepower in the upcoming transfer market.
