English Premier League giants Arsenal have rejected a £30million bid from Everton to secure the services of Super Eagles winger, Alex Iwobi.
Naija News understands that Iwobi is yet to return from holiday, following his participation at the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON).
Arsenal are believed to be holding out for a fee above £40million for the 23-year-old.
Although Iwobi is not angling for the transfer, he may be interested in playing for the Goodison Park club.
Meanwhile, the Gunners may be plotting a move for Chelsea Brazilian defender, David Luiz.
Reports emerged on Wednesday that Luiz is trying to force a move to Arsenal ahead of the 2019/2020 Premier League season.
David Luiz is among options Arsenal working on for centre-back – delicate but not for 1st time (see 31/01/18) #AFC keen. Kieran Tierney remains a target, Eddie Nketiah still deciding but likely Leeds, Alex Iwobi will happen IF Everton make suitable offer #EFC #LUFC #CFC #CelticFC
