Everton are reportedly preparing to make a bid for Wolves midfielder Morgan Gibbs-White.
According to Sky Sports reporter Dharmesh Sheth, the Toffees are expected to test Wanderers’ resolve with an official offer.
He suggests Wolves’ stance at the moment, stating that the club are ‘yet to decide’ whether they will allow him to leave.
Wolves value the player at £25 million though, and it’s possible that if Everton don’t offer that much, someone else will.
Interest in Gibbs-White is high at the moment.
As well we Everton, there is interest from the likes of Nottingham Forest, Southampton and Crystal Palace.
AC Milan were also linked earlier this summer.
Prior to Sheth’s claim, there had been reports that Wolves had wanted to keep Gibbs-White.
The club have even offered him fresh terms in a bid to convince him his immediate future lies at Molineux.
That was also as a reward for his fantastic season on loan at Sheffield United.
Bruno Lage is said to be a big fan of the 22-year-old and is ready to give him a chance in the 2022/23 season.
But it’s very possible that Wolves could ultimately sell.
There will likely be big temptation to offload Gibbs-White if someone did come in with an offer north of £25 million.
Gibbs-White’s stance will dictate what Wolves do, as Everton prepare bid
We have been led to believe that Wolves don’t particularly want to lose Gibbs-White.
But it could be that the player pushes for a move, if he doesn’t feel like he will get regular game time at Molineux.
And if that turns out to be the case, then Wolves will need to entertain the interest.
If Gibbs-White is happy to stay, then Wanderers shouldn’t be seeking to sell, unless someone comes in with a truly huge offer far beyond £25 million.
