Everton are reportedly still keen to snap up Morgan Gibbs-White, despite seeing a bid rejected.
The Toffees failed with a bid of around £25 million for the Wolves midfielder.
Wanderers are keen to keep hold of the 22-year-old, and it was reported earlier this week that the club would like to build around the star.
The club have offered Gibbs-White a new contract, before the player is yet to sign.
He is seemingly still deciding his future, with several teams on his tail at the moment.
As well as Everton, there is also interest from Southampton, Crystal Palace and Nottingham Forest.
It is suggested that Lage and Wolves could look to sell the player if he does not extend his contract at Molineux.
The Toffees may have failed with their opening bid for Gibbs-White.
But that will not put them off according to the Daily Mail, and they are expected to return with an improved offer.
It is thought that it would take around £30 million for Wolves to sell Gibbs-White (via 90min), although they would be reluctant to do so.
Yesterday, Gibbs-White was one of 30 players to fly out with Wolves to Alicante for their pre-season training camp.
The fact he has headed out suggests nothing is particularly close in terms of an exit.
The club have games coming up against Deportivo Alaves, Levante, Besiktas, before then taking on Sporting CP and SC Farense in the Algarve.
Wolves are in a strong position over Gibbs-White, with Everton still keen
Everton are clearly very taken by Gibbs-White after his brilliant 2021/22 season.
Wolves are in a strong position right now over the player.
While the club and Lage would ideally like to keep hold of him, the level of interest in him should see him sold for a high fee if the player indicates he wants to move.
It sounds as though Everton will return with a fresh bid.
And that could prompt some of the other clubs to also make offers of their own.
Potentially, Wolves would rake in a very tidy sum – which would have been unthinkable a year ago.
