Everton: Toffees confident of signing Morgan Gibbs-White

Everton: Toffees confident of signing Morgan Gibbs-White -Everton News

Everton chiefs are reportedly confident of signing Morgan Gibbs-White, and are lining up a new bid for the Wolves central midfielder.

The Lowdown: Bid rejected

The Goodison Park outfit have reportedly had an initial bid of £22.5m rejected by Wolves for Gibbs-White, while Nottingham Forest have also seen an offer turned down.

The Englishman is a player in demand this window, coming off the back of a very impressive season where he managed 13 goals and ten assists in total over all competitions, with the vast majority of them coming during a successful loan spell at Sheffield United (Transfermarkt).

The Latest: New bid lined up

As per Football Insider, the Merseyside club are ‘confident’ of signing Gibbs-White before the transfer window closes.

Toffees chiefs have been ‘encouraged’ by the fact that he is ‘keen’ on signing for them, and Frank Lampard’s side are now lining up a new bid for the 22-year-old.

The Verdict: Gueye alternative?

The proposed re-signing of Idrissa Gueye from PSG seems to have hit a stumbling block, and so the Blues may have to look at targeting other midfielders in the last few weeks of the window.

Hailed as ‘outstanding’ by former Barnsley head coach Poya Asbaghi, Gibbs-White was voted as the Blades’ Player of the Season last term despite only being on loan, and he is ready to make his mark in the Premier League.

If the Gueye deal does fall though, while Gibbs-White doesn’t offer the same defensive skill-set, he could provide another body in midfield to drive the game forward and get the Blues on the front foot.
