In addition to the arrivals, Manchester United coach Eric ten Haag should also give the green light to some expenses in the January transfer window.
Many young people from the academy are keen to go on loan, while a few minor members of the main squad are also desperate for regular playing time.
One of them is Anthony Elanga. The young Swede is struggling to replicate the form he showed during his breakthrough season last season.
Loan decision: Elanga or Pellistri
The Dutchman needed reinforcements in attack in January after Cristiano Ronaldo’s departure, and he got his wish in the form of new recruit Vout Weghorst.
But due to the continued absence of Jaydon Sancho, it is necessary to keep some attacking players in the squad, given that the team is still competing on four fronts.
Facundo Pellistri, who made his debut in the League Cup quarter-final against Charlton Athletic, is also looking for either the main number of minutes or the opportunity to leave and play more.
According to transfer guru Fabrizio Romano, Manchester United will make a decision on the lease of Anthony Elanga and Facundo Pellistri in the next few days.
Everton is among the clubs interested in the former, but clubs from other countries are also studying the situation,” the Italian wrote in his exclusive daily briefing for CaughtOffside.
According to Football Insider, Everton is working on an agreement to sign Elanga until the end of the season. Everton are in talks to buy Elanga, but are waiting for the green light from United.
Everton in talks over Elanga
The Toffees have struggled to find the back of the net this season, with only Wolves and Nottingham Forest scoring fewer than Everton’s 13 goals this season.
Given Dominic Calvert-Lewin’s ongoing fitness issues, Elanga was flagged as someone who could potentially come in and help the team avoid a relegation battle.
Elanga is said to be disappointed with the lack of opportunities under Ten Hage this season, as there are only seven starts in this campaign so far.
