Everton have tabled a £30 million bid for Arsenal forward Alex Iwobi, that’s according to Sky Sports and talkSPORT’s journalist Jim White.
The playing chances of the Nigeria international have taken a blow following the arrival of Nicolas Pepe from Lille, and he could be open to leaving the Emirates Stadium before tomorrow’s deadline.

Toffees boss Marco Silva wants to boost his frontline and is keen on Crystal Palace winger Wilfried Zaha.
However, Everton appear to have been prised out of a move for the Ivory Coast international, and it seems they have now turned their attentions to Iwobi.
The 23-year-old Iwobi, a former England youth international has 100 Premier League appearances to his name and could be a fine addition to the Everton attack given his ability to regularly carve out goalscoring chances for teammates.
With 149 total appearances for the Gunners and 36 caps for the Super Eagles, the youngster brings experience and quality to the table and could become a hit at Goodison Park.

If Emery will be willing to let him go and if the player himself will fancy a move to Everton remain to be seen, though.
