This Everton midfielder is being eyed by Newcastle United; what can he provide to Tyneside?

In a recent report by journalist Pete O’Rourke, it was revealed that Newcastle United have shown interest in acquiring Everton midfielder James Garner.

However, the Magpies could face competition from Tottenham Hotspur in their pursuit of the English talent during the upcoming summer transfer window.

Garner has been enjoying a commendable campaign at Goodison Park, demonstrating consistent performances in the heart of Everton’s midfield. The 22-year-old has contributed two

goals and one assist in 31 appearances across various competitions this season.

Statistically, Garner’s impact extends across both defensive and offensive aspects of the game.

In the Premier League, he averages 2.8 tackles, 1.5 interceptions, 1.5 clearances, 1.2 shots, 1.3 key passes, and 0.6 dribbles per 90 minutes, showcasing his well-rounded skill set. Moreover, he boasts

an 82% pass completion rate, indicating his reliability in possession (stats via Whoscored).

With a contract tying him to Everton until 2026, acquiring Garner won’t come cheap for Newcastle United. Nevertheless, his attributes as a solid tackler, proficient passer, and energetic

presence in midfield make him an appealing prospect for the Magpies under Eddie Howe’s management.

Bringing Garner to St. James’ Park would inject added energy and dynamism into Newcastle’s midfield, bolstering the squad’s depth. Given his existing Premier League experience at just

22 years of age, Garner represents a promising addition for Newcastle, provided they negotiate a reasonable price for his services at the end of the season.
