Gary Neville and Jamie Carragher believe Wolves are foolish to reject Nottingham Forest in their advances to sign Morgan Gibbs-White.
The Sky Sports duo have been discussing all things football on Instagram and the talk turned to Gibbs-White.
So far, the Reds have been thwarted in their efforts to sign the 22-year-old forward. It’s thought that Wolves are now demanding a staggering £50 million.
Neville and Carragher think it’s insane the amount that is being brandished about. They’ve both suggested that Wolves should be snapping Forest’s arm off.
Neville said on Instagram: “Wolves have turned down a bid from Nottingham Forest for £35 million for Morgan Gibbs-White. He doesn’t get a game, does he?”
Carragher responded with equal enthusiasm, saying: “He doesn’t play, no. Everton put a bid in earlier in the window, I think. I’d take that if I was Wolves.”
Neville was defiant too and agreed with Carragher, saying: “I mean seriously! I would as well.”
Gibbs-White has been the number one transfer target all summer and Steve Cooper seems determined to get his man.
The player was brilliant last season in the Championship. He scored 12 goals and registered 10 assists for Sheffield United.
He was also handed a start by Bruno Lage yesterday as Wolves lost 2-1 to Leeds on the opening day of 2022/23.
Neville and Carragher think Wolves are wrong to reject Gibbs-White bid
Forest look undeterred in their efforts to sign Gibbs-White before the transfer window closes.
Evangelos Marinakis is now involved in getting the deal over the line and Forest definitely need some more quality.
Gibbs-White is a steady player and he does have bags of potential. However, he’s absolutely not worth £50 million.
The player is thought to have told Wolves that he’s not willing to sign another deal, which could change their stance.
Lage will likely want to get his own squad in order first and once they’ve made a signing or two, Gibbs-White could be allowed to leave.
The Reds will continue in the hunt to sign their number one target. Carragher and Neville think Wolves have to accept Forest’s advances.
