Earlier Adnan Januzaj, Manchester United’s candidate, is available on a free transfer this summer and both West Ham and Everton are interested in getting his hands on him.

The now 27-year-old Belgian was released by Real Sociedad at the end of last season after 168 appearances for the Spanish club and 23 goals.

Januzaj entered the Manchester United scene in 2013 when David Moyes handed him his professional debut and the winger made 35 appearances for the Red Devils in that first season following the retirement of Alex Ferguson.

Nine years later, Moyes’ West Ham and Frank Lampard’s Everton are eager to bring the Belgium international back to the Premier League, according to The Sun.

If the Hammers got their hands on Januzaj, it would be the third time he and Moyes have teamed up, with the Scot loaning him to Manchester United’s Sunderland for the 2016-17 season.

Januzaj is currently still in Spain training with Malaga to keep fit while looking for a new club.

Spanish publication AS reports that he has no shortage of options, as not only two Premier League clubs are interested, but also Sevilla in La Liga and Napoli in Serie A.

Barcelona even considered an offer for the Belgian if a transfer for Raphinha and a new deal for Ousmane Dembele failed to materialize. Both did, so Januzaj is off their radar.
