Everton uninterested in Jarrad Branthwaite sale

Everton defender Jarrad Branthwaite has been linked with clubs like Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur.

A report from Football Insider has claimed that Everton are uninterested in selling Jarrad Branthwaite. The 21-year-old defender is a target for Manchester United and Tottenham, and the development will certainly come as a major blow for the two clubs.

Manchester United and Tottenham Interested in Jarrad Branthwaite

Tottenham need to sign a quality central defender, especially in the absence of Micky van de Ven, who is sidelined with an injury. The 21-year-old is highly rated in the Premier League, and he could have been a quality long-term addition to the Spurs defence.

It remains to be seen whether the North London outfit decide to make their move for Branthwaite in the coming weeks and convince Everton to change their stance with a lucrative offer. Meanwhile, Manchester United are keen on the talented young defender as well.

Players like Harry Maguire and Raphael Varane have been linked with moves away from Old Trafford and the 21-year-old could be their replacement. The opportunity to play for clubs like Manchester United and Tottenham will certainly be an attractive proposition for the young defender, and he could be slightly tempted if there is a chance to join the two clubs.

Everton are currently fighting the relegation battle, and losing a key defender midway through the season would be a devastating blow for them. It is hardly a surprise that they are unwilling to sell a key player.

Signing a quality replacement will be difficult in January. So, Manchester United and Tottenham will probably have to pay well over the odds in order to sign the 21-year-old defender next month. The 21-year-old defender could develop into a top-class Premier League player with the right coaching and guidance.

Joining a big club will help him compete at a high level and it could accelerate his development. Tottenham and Manchester United can certainly provide him with the platform to showcase his abilities at the highest level and it remains to be seen how to situation develops. Everton might struggle to hold onto him if the defender decides to push for a move.
