Leeds United are monitoring Manchester United midfielder James Garner.

The highly rated 21-year-old has impressed on loan at Nottingham Forest this season where he has excelled in a deep-lying playmaker role earning plaudits from the likes of Liverpool boss Juergen Klopp.

Despite the rivalry between the two clubs United may consider a permanent sale while Garner is eager to continue his progression by playing regular first-team football.

Garner has been a go-to man for Steve Cooper at Forest this season and has made 36 appearances for the club. 

The Man United loanee has scored three goals and added six assists during his time at the City Ground.

Leeds are likely to lose key figures Kalvin Phillips and Raphinha this summer though they insist there is no clause in the latter’s contract should they stay up. 

Sportsmail reported over the weekend that Barcelona are ready to make a player-plus-cash deal in a bid to sign Raphinha this summer.

Defender Oscar Mingueza, who can play at centre back or right back, has been mentioned as a possible makeweight in a deal to bring the 25-year-old to the Nou Camp. 

French giants Paris Saint-Germain have also been credited with strong interest in the Brazilian attacker.  

Leeds have begun to lay the groundwork to find replacements and will also make a renewed bid to sign USA international Brenden Aaronson from Red Bull Salzburg.

Garner is well regarded at United where he is held in high esteem by colleagues such as Juan Mata for his ability on the ball and eye for a pass. 

But coaches have preferred to loan him out at Watford and Forest in recent seasons and their transfer priority is to add a new holding midfielder.
