Arsenal reject Everton bid for Alex Iwobi – but Gunners braced for improved offer

Alex Iwobi

Arsenal have rejected a £30m bid from Everton for Alex Iwobi.

The Toffees have turned their attention to Iwobi after failing in their attempts to prise Wilfried Zaha away from Crystal Palace.

The Nigeria international may find game time harder to come by at the Emirates Stadium this season, with Arsenal having spent £72m on former Lille winger Nicolas Pepe.

However, the Gunners have turned down an opening offer of £25m up front, plus £5m in potential add-ons.

Everton, who are determined to strengthen in the wide positions before the transfer window closes on Thursday, are expected to return with an improved bid.

Iwobi made 51 appearances in all competitions last season, scoring six goals.
