The transfer window is set to end with a bang, and for Arsenal fans, it could be rather exciting.
Everton have bid £30m for Alex Iwobi.

With Laurent Koscielny and Carl Jenkinson both sold and the Evening Standard reporting that the Gunners are keen on bringing in a centre-back, the final few days of the window seemingly appeared to be all about looking for a new defender, but Everton have now thrown a spanner in the works.
Football London and the Daily Mail report that Everton have made a reported £30m bid for winger Alex Iwobi as an alternative for Wilfried Zaha, and as you would expect, this surprising piece of news sent Arsenal fans on social media into meltdown following a day where L’Equipe reported via Get French Football Now that the Gunners were close to signing Philippe Coutinho.
And, it appears as if the Toffees’ pursuit has taken a twist as Sky Sports report that Arsenal have rejected the £30m bid, but Everton are expected to return with an improved offer before tomorrow’s 5pm deadline.
Nevertheless, here is what some Arsenal fans had to say about the £30m bid on Twitter…
Emery I swear if you reject this

Take it. He’s not that good & he will never be a first-XI caliber player of the level we need. Not really a CM, not really a wide player, not really a forward. Take it.
