Just about 24 hours to the end of the summer transfer window, Arsenal Football Club has rejected £30 million bid for Super Eagles’ Alex Iwobi by Everton.
Everton turned attention to the Nigerian international after being priced out of a move for Wilfried Zaha and Watford Abdoulaye Doucoure.
Arsenal are believed to be open to selling Iwobi before Thursday’s deadline if there is an improved offer from the initial £30m rejected, according to SkySports report.
The Gunners added competition to their attack with the big-money arrival of Nicolas Pepe this summer.
Iwobi made 35 appearances for Arsenal last season and scoring three goals with seven assists.
But Everton’s move could be a ploy to tempt Zaha to push through an exit at Selhurst Park.
