Everton Must Break Arsenal Transfer Record To Sign Alex IwobiPublished: August 07, 2019
Arsenal have turned down a £30 million bid from Everton to sign Nigeria national-teamer Alex Iwobi.
BBC's David Ornstein has reported that the Toffees are likely to return with an improved offer before the close of the transfer window but likely need more than £40 million for the deal to go through, meaning they have to break the Gunners transfer record for outgoing transfers.
The 40 million pounds Arsenal received from Liverpool for the sale of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain remains the biggest deal in their 132-year history.
Iwobi is not angling for a move to Everton but would agree a move to Goodison Park if the two clubs reach an agreement.
The Hale End Academy product extended his contract after the 2018 World Cup tying him to Arsenal until 2022.
Although Iwobi has played mostly as a left winger at Arsenal, he is comfortable as an attacking midfielder as well.
