Toffees and Spurs hoping to secure Welbeck.
Read more Manchester United transfer news.
Everton and Tottenham Hotspur are the favourites land the signing of Manchester United forward Danny Welbeck before the transfer window closes on Monday evening, report the Mail, despite the academy graduate again having been involved for the Reds during their frustrating Premier League draw at Burnley on Saturday afternoon.
The England international forward has also been linked with a move to Arsenal during the last couple of weeks, but it would appear to be Everton and Tottenham who will fight it out for the signature of Welbeck during what is likely to be a particularly hectic deadline day when it comes to the future of Welbeck.
The report suggests that Tottenham are willing to pay around £15 million for the signing of Welbeck, which may give them the edge as Everton would prefer a loan move for the forward – although this depends on whether the player himself feels that he has a future at Old Trafford if he leaves on a temporary deal for the season.
Tottenham would seem to have the greater need for a centre forward, however, with Roberto Martinez having lured experienced goalscorer Samuel Eto’o to Goodison Park as back-up to Romelu Lukaku – whilst Spurs still have no clear first chice, with Roberto Soldado, Emmanuel Adebayor and Harry Kane all staking a claim.
