Former Aston Villa and Everton winger Anwar El Ghazi is a reported target for Man Utd.

Manchester United have been linked with a shock move for a former Everton flop.

The Red Devils have concerns on the right wing, with Jadon Sancho falling out with manager Erik ten Hag while Antony has been placed on a leave of absence amid allegations of violence against women.

As a result, United are reportedly weighing up signing Anwar El Ghazi. According to Mail Online, the 28-year-old watched ten Hag's side's loss to Arsenal before the international break.

El Ghazi is a free agent after leaving PSV Eindhoven at the end of August by mutual consent. The two-cap Holland international spent the second half of the 2021-22 season on loan at Everton from Aston Villa. Yet El Ghazi was surplus to demands under then-boss Frank Lampard, having been signed by Rafa Benitez before he was axed.

El Ghazi made just two appearances for the Toffees - coming to a total of just 11 minutes. He was also not included in the final five match-day squads as Everton secured their Premier League status on the penultimate day of the campaign.
