Manchester United winger Dan James would be a “game-changing” signing for Everton, according to Michael Brown.
The former Premier League midfielder, speaking exclusively to Football Insider assistant editor Russell Edge, has lauded the Welsh winger for his “unbelievable” speed but admitted he wanted to see him deliver on a regular basis rather than in flashes.
As revealed by Football Insider, Everton are plotting a potential raid to sign the 23-year-old on loan from Manchester United during the January transfer window.
The Toffees were keen on signing the Wales international from Swansea City but were beaten to his capture by Ole Gunna Solskjaer’s men.
Brown has suggested James would arrive at Goodison Park as an impact player, rather than a regular starter, and that he needs to work on becoming a more consistent performer.
Brown told Football Insider: “I think he’d be an addition, you know a Dan James playing well, as a game-changing player I would have said, that pace is unbelievable, isn’t it? That’s the key.
“There would be many clubs who want to use Dan James, not necessarily all the time, and I think that’s where he’s got to develop his game, where it becomes a regular over 90 minutes, not just impactful effect.”
James has started three times in the Premier League this season, while he has also featured in the League Cup and Champions League.
He has a total of 51 appearances, four goals and seven assists under his belt for the Red Devils.
