Everton have reportedly entered the race alongside Manchester United and several other clubs in closely tracking the development of Blackburn Rovers’ rising star, Adam Wharton.
Having risen through the ranks of Blackburn’s youth system, the 19-year-old prodigy made his senior debut in August 2022, impressively showcasing his skills in an EFL Cup encounter against Hartlepool. Over the course of the 2022-2023 season, the talented youngster notched up a total of 22 appearances, with 18 of those being in the demanding Championship. Hailing from Blackburn, Wharton demonstrated his potential with 12 starts, contributing a couple of goals and an assist to his team’s efforts.
Wharton’s abilities have also garnered recognition on the international stage, as he represented England’s U19 squad in six matches, displaying his talent and potential. His current market value, as per Transfermarkt.com, stands at a commendable 3.5 million euros.
