With less than 24 hours left of this transfer window, a winger appears to be amongst Everton’s top transfer targets.
The Toffees have recently had a second bid for Crystal Palace’s Wilfried Zaha rejected, and now they have also made a move for Alex Iwobi.
It is being reported that the Gunners have turned down a £30m offer from Marco Silva and co for the Nigeria international. However, the Goodison Park outfit are expected to make another approach, although it will need to be above £40m to persuade Arsenal to sell.
As he is not even a guaranteed starter for Unai Emery, £40m does appear to be a somewhat high valuation.
The Iwobi situation has certainly got Arsenal fans on Twitter talking. You can check out some of the best reactions to news of Everton’s interest below…
