Everton confident of agreeing new deal with Tottenham Hotspur target James Garner

Everton are looking to keep hold of their midfield sensation James Garner amidst interest in him from Tottenham Hotspur.

According to a report from Football Insider, Everton are confident about extending the stay of James Garner at the club. The English defensive midfielder’s impressive rise has resulted in a lot of interest and the Toffees do not want to part ways with him in the upcoming window.

Garner came up the ranks at Manchester United and made it to their first team in 2020. But, he ended up parting ways with the club in the summer of 2022. On the back of an impressive loan spell at Nottingham Forest, Everton signed him a deal worth around £15 million.

He has only gone from strength to strength since joining the Merseyside club. Garner has established himself as a mainstay in their team and was involved in 44 matches last term. The 23-year-old racked up over 3,600 minutes of first-team football and he was sensational throughout.

His consistent performances have put him on the radar of Tottenham Hotspur. The North London club want to reinforce their midfield in the summer. With Pierre-Emile Højbjerg expected to be on the move, they are looking to bring in a new defensive-minded midfielder and Garner is quite high on their wishlist.

While he prefers paying as a holding midfielder, the English sensation is well capable of playing on the flanks as well as in a bit more attacking role in the centre of the park. He still has two years left on his deal at Everton but they are looking to offer him a new deal amidst interest from Spurs.

Sean Dyche’s team are looking to reward him for his progress by offering him improved terms. It is believed they are making a move to fend off the interest in his services. Everton do not want to lose out on the 23-year-old and they are looking to secure his services with a new long-term deal.

The Merseyside club have already opened talks with the player despite the club’s financial struggles and the collapse of 777 Partners’ takeover. And, they are confident about tying him down to a new deal.
