Tottenham have joined the race to sign Everton midfielder James Garner this summer.

Garner, who has significantly impressed at Goodison Park since his arrival 18 months ago, has drawn interest from Spurs and Newcastle, according to TEAMtalk.

His crucial role in Everton’s dramatic last-day survival last season, coupled with his consistent performances this term, appearing in 30 games and contributing to the team’s scoring efforts, has not gone unnoticed.

Tottenham’s pursuit of a dynamic central midfielder sees Garner as a perfect match for manager Ange Postecoglou’s energetic play style.

Having joined Everton from Manchester United for £15 million, Garner’s potential move could bolster Spurs’ midfield options, especially with the uncertainty surrounding Chelsea’s Conor Gallagher.

Garner’s proven track record and international experience at youth levels, including a standout performance in the UEFA Under-21 Championship, mark him as a valuable asset for the North London club’s future ambitions.
