Anthony Elanga has rejected Everton because of Sean Dyche’s tactics.

The Manchester United winger has decided against moving to Goodison Park as he doesn’t believe he is suitable for the Everton boss’ system, according to the Daily Mail.

Elanga has failed to establish a regular place in the starting line-up under Erik Ten Hag after bursting onto the scene during the 2021-22 campaign.

The Swede only made five starts in the Premier League for the Red Devils last season and now looks set to leave Old Trafford, with the club already halving his price tag to only £10 million.

Everton had reignited their interest in Elanga this summer after United blocked their loan move for the forward in the final hours of the January transfer window.

The Toffees had held talks with Elanga as he seeks regular first team football, however it has been claimed he won’t be joining Everton because of Dyche’s tactics.

The report states that the 21-year-old has already decided upon his next destination, though it is unclear where he will be heading this summer – though it is definitely not Merseyside.

Anthony Elanga is a great player but Everton already have alternatives

Anthony Elanga showed huge promise in his breakthrough season at Manchester United, with even Zlatan Ibrahimovic heaping praise on the youngster as he prepared to make his Sweden debut in March 2022.

Speaking on his compatriot, the former striker said: “A great talent, we are proud and happy that he comes from Sweden.

“He has all the future ahead of him, and if he continues just as he has done, it looks positive.”

While Elanga could definitely thrive at his next club, it isn’t a huge loss for Everton that it won’t be them reaping the rewards.

Reports have claimed that the Toffees are set to announce the arrival of Arnaut Danjuma on loan this weekend, while they are still continuing their pursuit of Wilfried Gnonto.
