Tottenham Hotspur and Nottingham Forest are leading a list of interested clubs for Manchester United midfielder James Garner this summer, according to The Telegraph.

Tottenham have reportedly scouted Garner recently (The Athletic), and Man United are now ready to sell him permanently in this transfer window. Erik ten Hag has approved a sale but only for the right price, with his side valuing the midfielder at around £14-£20 million.

Garner has attracted interest from several Premier League teams, with Everton, Southampton and Leeds United all keen on the youngster (The Athletic).

The Englishman comes into this season off the back of an impressive spell on loan with Nottingham Forest, having joined them last summer (BBC Sport). Garner was integral in helping them achieve promotion to England’s top division for this campaign.

A move away from Old Trafford appears to be the likely outcome, with ten Hag’s team pursuing Juventus’ Adrian Rabiot and Frenkie de Jong of Barcelona as of now.

Spurs Web Opinion:

Antonio Conte’s side has already signed Yves Bissouma from Brighton and Hove Albion to improve their midfield this season. Tanguy Ndombele and Harry Winks have been put up for sale (Evening Standard), and Giovani Lo Celso has been loaned to Villarreal (Fabrizio Romano).

The profile of a holding midfielder is no longer required at N17. If anything, they need a creative presence in their ranks, which seems to be in their plans as well (Evening Standard), with this transfer window being in line to close shortly.
