Anthony Elanga loan from Manchester United ‘not a topic’ for Borussia Dortmund
Bundesliga giants Borussia Dortmund are not looking to get Sweden international Anthony Elanga on loan from Manchester United, according to Sky Sport reporter Florian Plettenberg on Twitter (h/t Manchester Evening News).
The youngster was being linked with a move to the Signal Iduna Park side on a temporary move in the ongoing transfer window. However, the 20-year-old is ‘not a topic’ for the German outfit.
Elanga has interest from Everton. Frank Lampard’s team have the Swedish national on their radar. The Toffees are struggling in the current campaign and are in a relegation battle in the Premier League at the moment.
The 20-year-old has made his way through the youth ranks at the Old Trafford side. Last season, the youngster broke into the Red Devils’ first team as Ralf Rangnick gave him plenty of opportunities.
In the previous campaign, the likes of Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial were underperforming. The England international did not look his usual self while the French national joined Sevilla on loan in January.
Thankfully, Rashford and Martial have seemingly found their feet under Erik ten Hag. The 25-year-old is currently the club’s leading goalscorer this season. While the former AS Monaco star’s campaign has been hampered by injuries, he has been decent when given the chances.
Apart from the two established forwards, new signing Antony has also been the gaffer’s preferred choice on the right wing. Alejandro Garnacho has also made an impact this season.
In January, United signed Wout Weghorst on loan for the rest of the campaign from Burnley to add depth up front. The Holland international made his debut in our last match against Crystal Palace.

Considering the competition for a place in the team, Elanga has found minutes on the pitch hard to come by. Thus, while Dortmund are out, it seems wise to let the 20-year-old leave on a temporary move to gain experience elsewhere.
