Elanga has been sought after by the Merseyside outfit since the beginning of last season, and it finally looks like they could get their man.

According to the Daily Mail, Everton have ‘firmed up’ their offer for the Manchester United player looking to bring in him on an initial loan deal.

In order to complete the deal however, the Toffee’s will need to let go of some of their current roster with Abdoulaye Doucoure, Michael Keane and Mason Holgate just some of the names who look to be on their way out.

Elanga made his competitive debut for the Red Devils in May 2021 under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, and has since registered 47 appearances for the side.

Since the arrival of Erik Ten Haag however, the Swede has fallen back down the pecking order.

With the emergence of teammate Alejandro Garnacho, Elanga has only managed to find his way into the starting 11 just five times this season.

Despite the interest from Everton, it is understood that there are some other Premier League teams who are keen to pursue the young winger.

Although if Lampard can complete the deal for Elanga, it will see their third forward signing since the start of the season, joining Neil Maupay and Dwight McNeil.

Even with their new look forward line-up, Everton have only managed to find the net 14 times in the league this season, the third lowest of all 20 teams.

The Goodison Park faithful will be hoping the potential introduction of Elanga will bring some much needed quality and goals for the side.
