Wolves have rejected a bid worth £25m including add-ons from Everton for midfielder Morgan Gibbs-White.
After spending last season on loan at Sheffield United, Gibbs-White is back in pre-season and scored in Wolves’ 3-0 victory at the weekend.
As it stands, Wolves believe the England Under-21 international can be a big player for Bruno Lage’s side this season.
Gibbs-White is a product of the Wolves academy and broke into the first-team in January 2017. The midfielder has featured 86 times for Wolves since then, but has only made 20 Premier League appearances in the past three seasons.
Last season, Gibbs-White was used in a more attacking role at Sheffield United and scored 12 goals in 37 matches in the Championship – with the Blades reaching the play-off semi-finals where they lost to promoted Nottingham Forest.
Everton’s business so far
Frank Lampard’s Toffees have only made one signing in this summer transfer window so far – the free signing of former Burnley defender James Tarkowski on a four-year deal.
Sky Sports News revealed in June that Everton are admirers of fellow midfielder Harry Winks, who has been told by Tottenham to find a new club this summer.
The Toffees have lost Brazilian striker Richarlison to Spurs in a £60m transfer, while Newcastle have been warned off winger Anthony Gordon.
