Nottingham Forest are interested in signing Manchester United forward Anthony Elanga

Nottingham Forest are working on a deal to sign Anthony Elanga from Manchester United.

The Times report that Forest are ‘keen’ on the forward, who has been told he can leave this summer.

The Red Devils value the Sweden international at around £15 million. 

Elanga has also attracted interest from Everton, who have reportedly entered talks with United over a possible deal.

The Toffees tried to bring in the 21-year-old on loan in January, but they failed to get the deal over the line.

Anthony Elanga must head for Man Utd’s exit door

Elanga has good options to leave in the form of Everton and Nottingham Forest.

He starred when Ralf Rangnick was interim manager but has been a peripheral figure under Erik ten Hag.

Elanga made 26 appearances in all competitions, but only seven were from the start.

He did not play a single minute in United’s final 13 league games.

The 21-year-old needs more playing time to develop his game. He cannot be satisfied with late run-outs from the substitutes’ bench.

Everton and Forest need to strengthen their attacking options and signing Elanga will help them add depth to their squad.

From United’s perspective, it is good news that multiple clubs are interested in Elanga.

They must not accept anything less than £15m for the young forward, who already has 12 international caps.

He has shown glimpses of his talent in a Sweden shirt and could be a fine player if he continues his development.

United must consider his potential and should not budge on their asking price.
