Everton: Toffees plotting bid for Gibbs-White

Everton are reportedly plotting a bid for Wolves midfielder Morgan Gibbs-White and the Englishman could be an excellent addition to Frank Lampard’s side at Goodison Park.

What’s the word?

According to Sky Sports journalists, Dharmesh Sheth and Alan Myers, Everton and Nottingham Forest are both interested in signing the 22-year-old this summer, with Wolves valuing him at around £25m.

They suggest that Wolves are yet to decide whether or not they want to let him leave, although a lack of first-team appearances in his time at Molineux may encourage him to seek pastures new.

In full, the tweet read: “Everton interested in Wolves midfielder Morgan Gibbs-White & expected to make official offer. Told Wolves value him at £25m but yet to decide whether they will allow him to leave. Nottingham Forest have also shown an interest.”

Having progressed through the academy at Wolves, the midfielder has been limited to just 86 appearances in all competitions, despite making his first-team debut in the 2016/17 season and it seems as if Bruno Lage was not all that keen on him, as he was allowed to join Sheffield United on loan last season.

He would make 37 appearances in total for the Blades, contributing 12 goals and ten assists, playing a big part as Paul Heckingbottom’s side reached the Championship playoffs before defeat against Nottingham Forest.

Supporters will be buzzing

Gibbs-White’s loan spell last season emphasised just what he is capable of and at 22 years old, he still has a lot of time to progress and achieve his obvious potential.

Should Everton sign Gibbs-White?

Should he complete a move to Everton, he would be learning from one of the best English midfielders of all time in Frank Lampard, who would undoubtedly be able to have a positive influence on his game.

The Toffees were desperately low on attacking quality and creativity in their midfield last season, with Abdoulaye Doucoure’s two goals and four assists the most of any central midfield option in Lampard’s squad.

Former Barnsley boss Poyo Asbaghi was full of praise for Gibbs-White last season, saying:

“He’s a really good player. I think Sheffield United have a lot of good players, but he is the most outstanding one.

“Of course we respect him and what he can do. He’s good like he showed for the goal, scoring and running in behind, but he is so good when he drops in-between the centre backs and the midfield to receive the ball to attack the spaces from there.”

Therefore, Everton supporters will no doubt be delighted to hear that they are looking to sign such a promising young talent on the back of a superb season with Sheffield United, and will be hoping that they can win the race to sign the Wolves man this summer.
