Sky Sports News are claiming that Everton has made a bid of £30 Million for Arsenal forward Alex Iwobi.
Their main transfer news anchor Jim White has just tweeted this

Now, Sky Sports News do not always get it right so this could be up there with some of their more notorious fake claims but I have to admit, it does make sense to me.
Iwobi’s place is clearly under threat at Arsenal now with Dani Ceballos and Nicolas Pepe having signed and £30 Million is a bloody good offer for the Nigerian international.
Everton are preparing for a deadline day blitz, they seem to be popping up everywhere and have just had a huge bid for Crystal Palace forward Wilfried Zaha turned down and so them making a move for Iwobi does seem very plausible.
This one is well worth monitoring because I would not be surprised if it did happen and I would also not be surprised if Iwobi himself would welcome a move to Merseyside, he would certainly get more regular football.
