Everton set to sign Manchester United midfielder James Garner

Everton have been heavily linked with a move for James Garner over the course of the transfer window.

The latest update from England suggests that Everton are set to sign Manchester United midfielder James Garner. He has been subject to interest from various Premier League clubs.

The 21-year-old’s contract at Manchester United is set to expire at the end of the 2023/24 campaign.

The midfielder has featured in 49 matches for Nottingham Forest last term, netting 4 goals and providing 10 assists in all competitions.

He has been touted as one of the brightest young prospects in England. Garner has represented England at Under-17, Under-18, Under-19, Under-20 and Under-21 level, winning 26 caps and scoring 3 goals.

James Garner is out of the picture at Manchester United, which has opened the door for a potential exit.

His impressive performances for Nottingham Forest last season have apparently caught the eye of some Premier League clubs.

Frank Lampard is keen to secure at least one more signing this summer, and James Garner could very well be a man under consideration.

The 21-year-old is a long-term target of Everton and could be a decent addition for Lampard’s side.


The Toffees are desperate to make an impact in the summer transfer window.

The 21-year-old has the talent to play many roles in midfield. His versatile nature can help the manager to be more flexible with the formations.

According to the report, “The Toffees are looking to add more depth to their squad before the transfer deadline closes on Thursday night, and Garner is seen as an ideal target to do that for Frank Lampard. The clubs have now agreed a deal worth between £15-20m for the England Under-21 international, but are waiting to agree personal terms as the player makes a final decision with other clubs still interested.”

Good signing for Everton?

If James Garner is available for £15-20m, then he could be a clever acquisition for Everton.

Garner has all the skillset required to be a success story at Everton. Therefore, it makes sense for Frank Lampard to step up his attempts to bring the England midfielder to Premier League side.
