Tottenham and Everton are fighting it out over Manchester United forward Danny Welbeck ahead of the close of the transfer window, according to the Daily Mail.
The England international looks to be on his way out of Old Trafford after being made available by boss Louis van Gaal, with his chances of first team football looking slim.

He is likely to cost around £15 million but the Mail add that he would prefer a loan switch in order to impress before heading back to Old Trafford to fight for his spot in the Manchester United first team.

Welbeck may well be the man for the job and the Manchester United ace would also give Spurs options on the left - a spot they had previously tried to fill by landing Jay Rodriguez from Southampton.

If the Chilean doesn't make the move to Old Trafford, then Nigel de Jong and William Carvalho are being suggested as potential alternatives,
