Everton Bid £30m for Arsenal's Iwobi

Everton have launched a bid to sign Arsenal winger Alex Iwobi before Thursday’s transfer deadline.

The Toffees have been chasing Wilfried Zaha in recent weeks but have seen at least two bids knocked back by Crystal Palace for the Ivory Coast international.

And with boss Marco Silva keen to add another winger to his squad, he has turned his attentions to Iwobi, with Everton having now made their first move to land the 23-year-old.

The Goodison Park outfit have tabled an opening offer - believed to total around £30 million ($36m), including add-ons - for the Gunners' academy graduate. Arsenal have rejected the bid, however.

Everton must now decide whether to increase their offer for a player who made 51 appearances last season in all competitions for Unai Emery’s side, scoring six goals.
