It’s now January 22nd, and the winter transfer window is quickly slipping away.
Some of the clubs who had been expected to do business are yet to get anything meaningful done, and among those are Everton and Manchester United.
At Old Trafford the squad is seriously depleted, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer needing reinforcements if he’s to stand a reasonable chance of the top four. Over at Goodison Park, new manager Carlo Ancelotti wouldn’t be unreasonable if he expected a signing or two of his own this month.
Both clubs have been linked to Emre Can, with the Turin media insisting there’s some level of interest.
Looking at his future today, Tuttosport report Borussia Dortmund have moved into the frame. The Bundesliga side, along with Everton and Manchester United, ‘seem willing’ to try and get a loan for the midfielder in the ‘final days of the market’.
Juventus, ideally, would like €30-40m, but they’re not getting that, and their likely response to a potential loan approach is unknown. It’s been reported previously that Can would be reluctant to join either of the two English clubs, given his past with Liverpool, but, in reality, it’s unlikely he’d turn down United especially.
