Transfer News: Nottingham Forest exit race for Tottenham Hotspur and Everton target James Garner
The 21-year-old defensive midfielder played a big role in the Tricky Trees sealing promotion to the Premier League for this season. It was natural for Forest to want to retain a player who featured 49 times for them across all competitions last season.
Valued at around £14million, Garner is largely a low-risk signing. He still has a lot of years ahead of him and could only improve if he gets to play under a superb man-manager such as Antonio Conte.
Everton could offer him something Spurs can’t at the moment- regular playing time. Of course, it won’t be guaranteed under manager Frank Lampard as well, but comparatively, Spurs are better off in terms of first-team midfielders.
Conte already has to decide between Yves Bissouma and Rodrigo Bentancur when it comes to partnering Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg. Garner, however, could be afforded playing time in cup games and off the bench.

He was an unused substitute in both of United manager Erik ten Hag’s first two competitive games at the club. For a player who was playing week in, week out last season, this is certainly a dampener.
