Everton reportedly ready to rival Leeds United for Man Utd and Wales winger Daniel James

Everton are reportedly keeping tabs on Manchester United and Wales winger Daniel James.

According to Football Insider, the Toffees are weighing up a possible January move for the 23-year old, with speculation continuing to grow over the winger’s future.

After a strong start to his Old Trafford career, James has seemingly slipped down the pecking order under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, particularly in light of Mason Greenwood’s emergence.

He was heavily linked with an exit back in the summer, with long-term admirers Leeds United making little attempt to hide their interest in the winger, but a move never materialised.

It remains to be seen if the Whites will try again, although it looks as though they would potentially face competition for his signature, with Everton believed to be eyeing up a potential loan.

Sources close to the player had previously insisted that he would only leave on a permanent deal, but there are growing questions over whether that stance may have now softened.

James will know that playing regular football will be vital to his chances of shining at the European Championships this summer, and further cement his importance to Wales, meaning he could well have a decision to make when the window reopens.

Whether United would be willing to let James go is another matter, although the arrival of Amad Diallo in January, and perhaps even a resurrected interest in Jadon Sancho, could maybe see them become more willing to do a deal.
