Paul Robinson has tipped Everton to fight Leeds United for Manchester United star Dan James either in the January transfer window or in the summer.
Speaking to Football Insider, the former Spurs and England international goalkeeper has tipped the two clubs in the Premier League to be the front runners in terms of trying to lure him away from Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team:
“Dan James would force his way into that team.
“He is really struggling to get game time at Manchester United which I am surprised by because he hit the ground running when he came in.
“He is a young player that needs to be playing. You cannot just sit and train at Manchester United and think you will get your chance soon.
“It would be a surprise but there could potentially be an opportunity to buy Dan James in January or the summer.
“We have seen what he can do. Everton will be looking at him and I would not be surprised if Bielsa went back after him. We know that he almost signed for Leeds before United.
“There will be a lot of clubs after Dan James should he become available.”
James has received high praise
James has received high praise in the past, none more so from his national team boss in Ryan Giggs.
Would James be a good signing for Everton?
Whether he could reach the heights of the Portugal icon is another question, but being just 23 years of age, James certainly still has potential.
Should Everton sign James?
The Goodison Park faithful could count it as pretty smart business if they were to be able to secure the services of James, whether that would be in January or next summer.
Having only played in no more than six matches over all competitions so far in the 2020/21 season for the Old Trafford faithful, a move to Carlo Ancelotti’s side for him would make sense for all parties involved.
The winger would provide some useful competition for the likes of Alex Iwobi and Bernard for the Toffees, and if he were to sign in January, he could help the Blues push towards qualifying for European competition for the next campaign.
