Report: Many Premier League clubs interested in Daniel James
There are many Premier League clubs interested in signing Daniel James, with the Daily Mail reporting that the Leeds United star will have his pick of the offers should he leave Elland Road.
James has emerged as a surprise target for Tottenham in the final days of the window. The Daily Mail reports that Antonio Conte wants the Welshman as a replacement for Bryan Gil.
Spurs want James on loan with an option to buy. But Leeds are more than happy to keep the 24-year-old.
Interestingly, it may not only be Tottenham – and Everton – Leeds have to fend off interest from ahead of the deadline.
The Daily Mail reports that many Premier League sides are keen on signing James. His work-rate and pace makes him an appealing option for a number of teams. And he will reportedly have his pick of the options should he leave.

Leeds fans look to be somewhat divided over the prospect of losing James. One thing that is for certain is that the large majority would not let him leave if Jesse Marsch was not getting a replacement in.
James frustrates supporters. The Whites have not seen the best of the former Swansea man since his move, despite ‘outstanding‘ flashes. Some of that has not been his fault, with James often deployed as a striker last season.
But Leeds can hardly afford to reject a big offer for the wide-man. So it will be very interesting if any side does make a considerable offer in the coming days.
James will also be left with a decision to make. He may soon find himself out of Marsch’s preferred lineup if Luis Sinisterra can force his way into the side.
And that may perhaps make any of the offers which come in seem a lot more appealing.
