The transfer journalist states that several clubs are keen on signing the 21-year-old since January, therefore, this is a deal Everton might want to wrap up quickly to avoid others bidding for the Swedish star.
Elanga is under contract at Old Trafford through 2026, and the Liverpool Echo reports that offers of around £10 million could be sufficient to retain the services of the young player given that Erik ten Hag does not have high hopes for the Sweden international at United.
In 26 appearances last season, the winger only played 702 minutes, and the 21-year-old needs more time to advance.
Elanga showed promise during the 2021–2022 season, but the Man United star is still extremely young. The Swedish international will undoubtedly provide some enthusiasm to a team that is anticipated to battle relegation once more during the upcoming season as Everton attempts to reach an agreement with the Manchester club.
