Reported West Ham target Adnan Januzaj before a match

Former Manchester United winger Adnan Januzaj has offers from Everton and West Ham on the table as he ‘gets closer’ to deciding his future.

Januzaj, who is a free agent having left Real Sociedad at the end of last season, has ‘no shortage of offers’ as he considers his next move.

The 27-year-old was tipped to be a global star when he burst on to the scene with United as a teenager in 2013, but has struggled to reach those predicted heights.

He has contributed 23 goals and 21 assists in 166 appearances for Real Sociedad since his move from Old Trafford in 2017.

The Belgium international is now without a club but is ‘getting closer’ to making a decision on his future, according to AS (via Sport Witness).

The report claims there’s a proposal from a Qatari club, interest from Napoli and Sevilla, as well from Everton and West Ham, who both reportedly have offers on the table for the winger.

Januzaj’s current priority is to stay in Europe and play Champions League football, but he may struggle for offers from teams at that level.

The forward is preparing for his move at a high performance centre in Marbella, with his decision getting ‘closer and closer’.

Meanwhile, Jesse Lingard is thought to be ‘edging closer to a return to West Ham’, which could end their interest in Januzaj.

Lingard performed brilliantly while on loan at West Ham during the 2020/21 campaign, with nine goals and four assists in 16 Premier League outings.

The midfielder was back at Man Utd last term but was once again a bit-part player and left his boyhood club as a free agent at the end of his contract earlier this summer.

A deal is now expected to be completed as there have been ‘further positive talks’ between Lingard, his representatives and the Hammers.

The report adds that Everton and Newcastle United are set to ‘miss out’ after expressing interest in Lingard.
