Wolves transfer news: Everton increasingly confident of signing Gibbs-White

Everton are reportedly becoming increasingly confident of signing Morgan Gibbs-White from Wolves.

According to 90min, the Toffees are feeling good about the prospect of landing the England U21 international, despite having seen an opening bid rejected.

Earlier this week, Everton saw a bid of over £20 million rejected by Wanderers.

But it is expected they will return with another.

He is one of their priority targets this summer, with Frank Lampard looking to sign a player to bring a bit of dynamism and creativity.

Apparently, Everton are now feeling increasingly confident of signing the 22-year-old.

Wolves are supposedly looking to bank around £30 million if they are to sell.

The club don’t particularly want to offload him, with Bruno Lage a big fan of his.

The manager has apparently spoken to Gibbs-White, with the player wanting assurances about game time in 2022/23.

If he does not feel he will get regular minutes, he could well push for an exit.

But Wolves are wanting to try and build around him according to reports earlier this week.

It remains to be seen what will happen. At the moment, Gibbs-White is part of a 30-man Wolves squad in Alicante for pre-season.

It is expected he will feature in the upcoming games against Deportivo Alaves, Levante and Besiktas.

Everton need to show Wolves the money, as report claims Toffees are confident they’ll sign Gibbs-White

It’s all well and good that Everton are growing in confidence that they will sign Gibbs-White.

But nothing will ultimately happen unless they meet Wolves’ reported £30 million asking price.

Wolves know multiple teams are keen on Gibbs-White. There is, therefore, a good chance of that demand being met.

Wanderers also want to keep him and have him sign a new contract.

So it is going to take a lot of money for him to leave the club this summer.

Everton may be feeling increasingly confident, but they need to show Wolves the money if they are to sign the star.
