Leeds United and Everton are both interested in signing Tom Lawrence as the Derby County man prepares to continue on for nothing this summer.
Lawrence is out of contract this summer and will leave Derby after being relegated to League One.
The Wales international was regularly linked with an exit during Derby’s financial collapse but remained loyal to the Rams.
Lawrence was captain at Derby but is now ready to move on – and it could end up being a move to the Premier League for the former Manchester United talent.
Leeds United and Everton are both interested in signing Tom Lawrence
The Daily Mail report that there is a lot of interest in Lawrence’s signature this summer.
Everton and Leeds United are understood to be interested in landing Lawrence on a free transfer.
Links to Everton should perhaps not come as a huge shock as Lawrence’s former Derby boss Frank Lampard is in charge there.
Lampard called Lawrence a “top player” back in 2019. and could now envision reuniting with the Attacker this summer.
Leeds are also eyeing Lawrence as they consider big options should Raphinha leave Elland Road.
Interest in Lawrence is even greater with Fulham, Burnley, Norwich City and Watford looking to sign Lawrence.
Bournemouth are also keen, while even Belgian club Anderlecht are keeping an eye out.
Newcastle and Wolves were even linked with Lawrence earlier this year.
Lawrence will apparently not be short of suitors this summer and some clubs could have an advantage.
Watford and Norwich return to the Championship while Fulham and Bournemouth rise.
Leeds and Everton are both battling relegation, as is Burnley.
That means the relegation fate of interested clubs could potentially have a big impact on where Lawrence ends up.
The 28-year-old has registered 11 goals and five assists in 38 games this season and would certainly be tempted should a Premier League offer arrive.
