‘Not an upgrade’ – Frank Lampard warned over move for Manchester United forward Anthony Elanga – Manchester Evening News

Paul Robinson believes Frank Lampard should steer clear of any potential advances for Manchester United forward Anthony Elanga. Elanga, 20, has failed to make an impression for the Reds so far this season, with big-money signing Antony largely preferred on the right side of United’s attack and Marcus Rashford a clear first pick off the left. Elanga is yet to open his account for the 22/23 campaign and has been linked with a possible move away. Everton have been linked with a move for Elanga, with the Goodison Park club currently bidding to stave off relegation from the Premier League. Elanga was an unused sub during United’s 3-1 win over Everton on Friday.

He has amazing pace and has had good moments but he is a squad player for them. I’m not sure he’d make an immediate impact on that Everton team. That is what Everton need. They need someone who is going to score the goals to keep them up. “I would be focused on signing a striker if I was them. I think they have enough in the wide areas to get to the end of the season.” READ NEXT: Besiktas release statement on Wout Weghorst Three things spotted in United training Diogo Dalot reveals stance over new contract United predicted line-up vs Charlton Manchester United news homepage Story SavedYou can find this story in  My Bookmarks.Or by navigating to the user icon in the top right.
