According to Fichajes, Everton has shown keen interest in signing Harry Maguire from their Premier League rivals Manchester United during the upcoming January transfer window. Reports suggest that Maguire is currently struggling for playing time at United, opening up the possibility of a potential move to Goodison Park in the middle of the season.
Maguire’s Struggles at Manchester United
Harry Maguire, the 30-year-old England international central defender, has found himself on the periphery of the Manchester United squad recently. It appears unlikely that he will secure a spot in the first team anytime soon. So far in this campaign, Maguire has only managed to play 23 minutes in the Premier League and has featured just once in the Carabao Cup under the management of Erik ten Hag.
Everton’s Position and Ambitions
Currently positioned 15th in the Premier League table, Everton has collected a modest four points from their first six matches. Their position is precarious, as they are only three points above the relegation zone. In light of this, Everton is looking to bolster their defensive options by potentially acquiring Maguire.
On the other hand, Manchester United currently sits in ninth place in the standings with nine points from six matches. They are trailing behind fourth-placed Tottenham Hotspur by a margin of five points.
It remains to be seen how this transfer speculation unfolds, but Everton’s interest in Maguire could potentially provide a much-needed solution to their defensive woes while simultaneously offering Maguire an opportunity for regular playing time.
