Everton are reportedly monitoring the situation around Harry Maguire’s future as West Ham see their offer for the defender rejected.

According to Miguel Delaney, from The Independent, Sean Dyche’s side aim to make a move for Harry Maguire themselves, the England centre-half, according to the report, is gradually coming to the acceptance that it is better for his Euro 2024 hopes if he gets regular football.

The Everton side may well be a good move for the defender with the Englishman needing regular game time if he is to make the move to Goodison Park.

Although a move to West Ham, who won the Europa Conference League last season, would be an upgrade on a move to Dyche’s Everton.

David Moyes’ side can offer European football to the defender which may well be the crucial deciding factor for the defender if he is to leave United.

Maguire’s stance is unknown

As of yesterday, Maguire’s stance remains unknown with Alex Crook, from TalkSport, tweeting that the defender has still yet to make clear what his preference is this summer with there still being no indication over what the future holds for the United defender.

Maguire has been linked with a move to The Hammers and the East London side saw their £30 million offer rejected for the defender according to the same tweet from and they are considering upping their offer.

The defender has been a bit of a bit part player under Erik ten Hag since the Dutchman took over the club last Summer and it seems the defender is set to move away from Manchester this summer.

United targeting two more players

Incredibly, despite around £150 million being spent on players so far this summer, United are targeting an additional two players before the window shuts.

The report, from The Independent, states that United are interested in Romeo Lavia, should the Sofyan Amrabat deal fail to materialise. As well as this, they are interested in OGC Nice defender Jean-Clair Todibo in the event that Maguire does leave.

If Everton were to enter the race for the defender, this would lead to United driving the price up and recouping more of the £80 million they spent on the defender back in 2019.
