Anyone else think it’s ironic that Zaha hands in a transfer request just hours after Everton make a bid for iwobi?
Off the record people talk behind the scenes, Zaha wouldn’t’ have taken this action unless his advisors believed a move was a realistic prospect.
I find it hard to believe that Arsenal and Everton value Iwobi at £40 million yet wouldn’t at least offer £70 Million for the Eagles midfielder.
In my opinion, Zaha is better than two Iwobi’s and that has got me to thinking that this is some sort of machiavellian ploy.
This could be a tactical plan from Goodison, forcing Zaha to act by pretending they have interest elsewhere, which would then unfairly unsettle the Nigerian international.
That said, the scenario I’m dreaming of is that we get an unexpected £40 million for a player surplus to requirements and have decided to put that towards the Zaha fund.
If those on Merseyside are genuine then it would be foolish not to take the money they are offering for Iwobi.
I find it hard to believe that we would get anywhere near that in 12 months time.
This is an opportunity too good to miss and we should do all we can to sell Iwobi and then finally make a proper move for Zaha.
