Everton FC have had a sensational bid of 30 million pounds for Nigeria international Alex Iwobi rejected by Arsenal who have reportedly indicated interest in offloading the Super Eagles star for 10 million pounds more.
Arsenal have rejected a multi-million dollar offer from the Toffees for their academy graduate and would consider an improved bid should Everton return, according to MailOnline.
As per others, Everton £30m bid for Alex Iwobi rejected. Made to Arsenal today & knocked back. Expected to return with improved offer but likely need £40m+ to be accepted. 23yo not agitating but would go if deal agreed. #EFC interest recent & is in addition to Wilfied Zaha #CPFC
