Everton make bid for Wolves’ Morgan Gibbs-White

Everton are working on a move for Wolves’ Morgan Gibbs-White, despite the midfielder being a primary target for Nottingham Forest.

What’s the word?

That’s according to The Athletic, who claim that Everton have shown a fresh interest in the player, who spent last season on loan to Sheffield United.

Forest, who have been active in the market since their promotion, are keen to add Gibbs-White to their ranks.

He is seen as a primary target for Steve Cooper.

Everton then followed up their interest on Monday with a bid according to John Percy. He took to Twitter to say: “Wolves have rejected a bid in excess of £20m from Everton for Morgan Gibbs-White. NFFC and CPFC also interested in signing the England under-21 international.”

He could be their new Dele

Since signing on a free transfer from Tottenham, opportunities for Dele Alli have been few and far between.

The former two-time Premier League young player of the year has seen his career stunted after a blistering start, as he struggled to announce himself to the many managers he featured under.

In Gibbs-White however, Frank Lampard could provide ample competition to hopefully propel the 26-year-old back to his old ways, and in the meantime develop his own version of that youngster who burst onto the scene.

Last season for Sheffield United, the man who Wolves rate at £30m excelled in their promotion bid.

He managed 20 goal contributions for the Blades on their way to the playoffs, where they were beaten on penalties by those who now seek to sign Gibbs-White.

Not only this but his average SofaScore rating of 7.16 marks an incredibly high performer across his 35 league appearances.

His performances in the Championship earned him huge praise from his teammates, with David McGoldrick claiming “he’s got the world at his feet”.

Firstly, where did Everton finish in the Premier League?

He continued: “He’s got all the ability in the world. He just needs to play games and he’s doing that here. He’s expressing himself, got the license and free spirit to go out there.

“We want him to go and create. He’s going to lose the ball sometimes. All good players do that but as long as he’s in the right positions and scoring goals like that I don’t mind what he does.”

If Lampard is willing to give a free role to either him or Dele, both the young and the experienced could push one another to bring out their best performances.

Everton could strike gold if they swoop for this Wolves youngster, and could secure both the Dele of old and the potential new Dele in Gibbs-White.
