Arsenal £10m Offer for ‘Phil Jagielka’ Turned Down by Everton: Latest soccer news that Arsenal £10m Offer for ‘Phil Jagielka’ Turned Down by Everton. Arsenal suffers another setback. According to the BBC their bid of £10m for the England and Everton defender Phil Jagielka has been turned down by Everton. It seems that nothing is going right for them at the moment.
Arsene Wenger is desperately trying to bring in a defender after the departure of Gael Clichy to Manchester City. His first choice was of course Gary Cahill of Bolton. However, that deal also hit snags over the valuation of the player. Arsenal wanted to pay only £10m, whereas Bolton is demanding £10m for the player. Moreover, there were also reports that Chelsea is targeting Gary Cahill.
It seems that their last chance left is with the bid for highly rated Scott Dann of Birmingham. Arsenal is probably going for a £10m bid for him when they got the clue that their bid for Phil Jagielka is being turned down by Everton. Birmingham has been relegated to the Championship.
But at the same time Scott Dann has also attracted attention from Liverpool and Manchester City. Even if this bid if and when launched meets the same fate then God help Arsenal.
