Arsenal have rejected a £30 million bid submitted by Everton to sign Nigerian winger, Alex Iwobi, Concise News reports.
Everton had prioritised a move for Wilfried Zaha but Crystal Palace are demanding £100 million for their star player.
The report claims that Arsenal have been offered £25m upfront with a further £5m in add-ons. But Everton’s bid has been rejected by Arsenal.
Meanwhile, the Gunners are stepping up their own efforts to land a new central defender with Juventus’ Daniele Rugani and RB Leipzig’s Dayot Upamecano on their shortlist.
A £55m bid for Upamecano has been rejected, while the Gunners’ two-year loan offer for Rugani has been snubbed by Juventus.
Arsenal have now revised their offer for Rugani by shortening it to a one-season loan with a mandatory option to buy for €30m (£27.6m).
