Arsenal have rejected a 30 million pounds bid for Super Eagles star Alex Iwobi from Premier League rivals Everton. The 23-year-old is reportedly considering his future at the club following the arrival of Nicolas Pepe for a club-record fee.
The Ivorian international arrival has put Iwobi’s chance of regular game time in danger. With Emery set to go with the 4-2-3-1 formation, Iwobi is likely to be on the bench this season.
However, Everton are ready to offer him a chance of regular football that will aid his development and have made a bid in the range of 30 million pounds for him according to SkySports.
Although it is not known yet if Arsenal are willing to let Iwobi leave, the club are reportedly working on a loan move for Philippe Coutinho and that could signal the end of Iwobi’s time at Arsenal.
