Everton and West Ham linked with moves for Shinji Kagawa


Falling down the pecking order at Dortmund

Premier League sides West Ham and Everton have been linked with a move for former Manchester United star Shinji Kagawa.

The Japanese playmaker has fallen down the pecking order at Borussia Dortmund of late.

Once of Manchester United, the player returned to Germany back in the 2014/15 season.

Since then, it’s been a slow decline for the player.

Despite being pretty decent for the first few years of his return, he’s now fallen out of favour.

The playmaker has only made four appearances so far this season and could now look for an escape route.

Kagawa set for Premier League return?

That is according to Calcio Mercato, as cited by talkSPORT, who claim West Ham and Everton are interested in a move for the player.

West Ham signed very heavily in the summer but have not made the greatest of starts to the Premier League season.

They have also suffered from injury problems and Kagawa’s former Dortmund teammate Andriy Yarmolenko is set for a long spell on the sidelines.

That could leave them looking to reinforce their attacking options in the January transfer market.

The other team linked with Kagawa, Everton, have been flying of late.

They have won four out of their last five games and are playing some lovely stuff.

Though, if reports are correct, the Toffees could look to add Kagawa to their squad.

It would certainly give them some more creativity in attack and the player could be a good backup to Gylfi Sigurdsson.
