Everton lead tussle for Manchester City outcast

Scott SinclairThe Football Transfer Tavern is hive of activity with just weeks to go until the new football season and one man who will be seeking to see more football is Manchester City misfit Scott Sinclair. Luckily for the 24-year-old today’s Metro reports that a host of club want to sign the former Swansea City winger with Everton thought to be leading the race.

New Toffees boss Roberto Martinez has put the capture of the player he worked with while Swansea manger high on his list of priorities after his summer arrival from Wigan Athletic.

Martinez will have to persuade his new chairman Bill Kenwright to sign off the deal but it is thought that the winger would be interested in a move to Goodison Park as he looks to revive his flagging career.

Sinclair has just made 11 appearances for City since joining in a £6.2.m switch during last summer’s transfer window and with the arrival of Sevilla winger Jesus Navas his short time at the Etihad Stadium could soon be coming to an end.

Southampton appear to another option for the former Chelsea trainee with Saints boss Mauricio Pochettino seeking a winger for the new campaign and he is ready to pay £5.5m to secure Sinclair on a permanent basis according to reports in the Sun.

Sinclair’s brother Jake is a member of the youth team at St Mary’s and the Argentine boss hopes that may help bring the wide man to the south coast during the summer.

There is also reported interest from Stoke City and West Brom for the Englishman.

Where will Sinclair end up during the transfer window? Let us know your thoughts below.
