Everton offer Arsenal £30m for Alex Iwobi & Wilfried Zaha is ‘fuming’ with Crystal Palace

Everton offer Arsenal £30m for Alex Iwobi

In his role on TalkSport radio on Wednesday, Jim White has claimed that Everton have offered Arsenal 30 million pounds for Alex Iwobi.

Jim White, who also works for Sky Sports, is well-known to have close contacts with Everton owner Farhad Moshiri.

UPDATE: Since posting this story, Football London reporter James Benge has also confirmed Everton’s bid for Arsenal’s Iwobi.

23-year-old winger Iwobi is under contract at Arsenal until 2022.

Last season, Iwobi made 35 appearances for Arsenal in the Premier League.

He scored three goals and assisted seven.

Overall, Iwobi scored six goals and contributed 9 assists in 51 matches for the Gunners.

Yet, it’s easy to see why Arsenal might consider Everton’s offer.

Unai Emery’s squad is stacked with attacking, creative players.

Wilfried Zaha is ‘fuming’ with Crystal Palace

As for why Everton may now be chasing Iwobi, that’s likely to be a result of their failure to land Wilfried Zaha from Crystal Palace.

As confirmed by the Guardian’s Ed Aarons, “Crystal Palace have rejected a £70m bid from Everton for Wilfried Zaha plus James McCarthy (permanent) and Cenk Tosun on loan.”

With the transfer window shutting on Thursday, the Eagles have now placed a 100 million pound price tag on Zaha’s head.

The Guardian reporter also revealed that Zaha is “fuming” with Palace.

Moreover, the Ivory Coast international is now hoping to leave Selhurst Park for a European club.
