Manchester United have been monitoring Everton central defender Jarrad Branthwaite ahead of a possible move this summer, according to a report.
One of those targets is said to be Everton’s Branthwaite according to the Daily Mail, with Ten Hag said to be interested in signing a mixture of internationals as well as younger players with potential to develop.
After signing for the Toffees from Carlisle United for around £1m in January 2020, the 19-year-old was handed his debut by Carlo Ancelotti when the Italian was in charge.
The teenager signed a contract extension in December that ties him down at Goodison Park until 2025, and has gone on to make eight Premier League appearances to date, including four for Frank Lampard‘s struggling side this season.
Branthwaite last featured for Everton at Burnley earlier this month, with the defender playing the whole 90 minutes as his side lost the relegation battle 3-2.
