The Lowdown: How much would Gibbs-White cost?
90min reported last month that Nottingham Forest were hopeful of completing a club-record £20m deal for the player, although The Athletic have recently claimed that Wolves will demand in the region of £30m for his services, with the Toffees also interested in his signature.
A 22-year-old Englishman playing in the Premier League, a fee of between £20m and £30m could be a good price for the central midfielder.
The Latest: ‘No-brainer’
Speaking to GIVEMESPORT, Brown has now claimed that signing Gibbs-White on a potential cut-price deal would be a ‘no-brainer’ and a ‘brilliant bargain’ for Everton, but he does not think that they would have enough money to sign the 22-year-old if Wolves demand a ‘big fee’.
The journalist said: “I think if there was some way of doing that for a brilliant bargain price, it will be a no-brainer, because of his age, but if it’s to command a big fee, I don’t think Everton have the money for that when they need to strengthen in other areas more.”
The Verdict: Get it done
If Everton can persuade Wolves to let Gibbs-White leave for closer to £20m, then it would be a deal that they must look to get done as soon as possible, in order to fend off competition from Forest and other potential suitors in the Premier League.
Hailed as ‘unreal‘ last season by European football expert and journalist Alex Barker when he was on loan at Sheffield United, the midfield dynamo helped the Blades to reach the Championship play-off semi-finals.
Nonetheless, this potential deal will be one to watch out for as the new season draws closer.
