Anthony Elanga rejected West Ham United before agreeing Nottingham Forest move

Manchester United winger Anthony Elanga is set to complete a move to Nottingham Forest after rejecting Everton and West Ham United.

According to 90min, Anthony Elanga is on the verge of securing a £15 million move to Nottingham Forest. But he snubbed an offer from West Ham United while choosing the Tricky Trees. The 21-year-old winger will be looking to play regular first-team football at Forest next season and continue his development over the next few seasons.

West Ham United and Everton were keen on signing the Manchester United winger. But the 21-year-old has decided to move to Nottingham Forest in a £15 million deal instead. It will be interesting to see if West Ham move for another winger in the coming weeks.

The Hammers were quite disappointing in the final third last season and they need to bring in attacking reinforcements in the coming weeks. West Ham have significant resources at their disposal, especially after the departure of Declan Rice, and they should be able to sign the necessary players to boost their squad.

Meanwhile, the former Manchester United winger made 26 appearances for the Red Devils across all competitions last season. But his appearances were mostly limited to cameos. He will look to secure regular first-team action under his belt now. A move to Nottingham Forest could accelerate his development if he can get regular game time.

The 21-year-old is highly rated in English football, and he has a big future ahead of him. Nottingham Forest will hope that he can fulfil his potential with them. The £15 million move could look like a bargain if the talented youngster manages to hit the ground running.

Manchester United already have players like Jadon Sancho and Antony at their disposal. So Elanga would have struggled for first-team action. The 21-year-old has made a wise decision to leave the club permanently, and he will get plenty of opportunities to play for big clubs in the future if he manages to fulfil his potential in the coming seasons.

Meanwhile, West Ham will be competing in the Europa league next season, and they need to improve their squad in order to do well in the European competition. They should look to bring in a quality attacker who can support the likes of Jarrod Bowe and they will need to replace Rice in the midfield as well.
