Everton have reportedly submitted a bid for Anthony Elanga as they look to bolster their attack with bargain arrivals.

According to the BBC, Everton may have submitted a bid for Anthony Elanga ahead of a possible transfer. The Manchester United attacker is available for around £15-20 million, but whether the Toffees could come close to that valuation remains the question.

Anthony Elanga emerged as a promising player for Manchester United after breaking through under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. While the Norwegian departed that season, his successor Ralf Rangnick identified his talents and consistently played the winger.

His game time waned under Erik ten Hag after being on the substitutes’ bench for most of last season. He clocked 702 minutes across all competitions, playing in 26 games. The Manchester United attacker failed to find the net during the campaign, and the club now seeks to sell him.

In truth, following the arrival of Antony from Ajax, Elanga fell down the pecking order and remains behind the likes of Jadon Sancho. The signing of Mason Mount could further push him behind, as a move away from the club would make sense for his playing career.

The Manchester United attacker still has three years left on his deal, and the club are open to selling him for around £15-20 million. It’s a high price for a player barely used by Ten Hag, as the Red Devils hope to gather funds to bring in new players for the first team.

Elanga had interest from Borussia Dortmund in the past, but now Everton appears like the side pushing to sign him this summer. Whether the Manchester United attacker would like a move to Merseyside remains the question. The Toffees could look for a potential replacement if Alex Iwobi leaves.

In any case, Everton wants to strengthen their attacking side, with Elanga considered a viable candidate. They were also expected to hold direct talks with Manchester United for the attacker and may have already lodged a bid.

Whether their supposed offer came close to Manchester United’s asking price remains the question. Following their financial standing, it’s unlikely that Everton must have bid in the £15-20 million range, but probably much lower.

Sean Dyche hopes the club wrap up their business and bring in players that improve the squad. The manager would hope for a team that will avoid a relegation battle. They have already brought in the experienced Ashley Young on a free transfer from Aston Villa.
