Dean Jones has told Give Me Sport that Alex Iwobi will not be allowed to leave Everton.
The former Arsenal midfielder has one more year remaining on his deal at Goodison Park prompting speculation over his future.
But the journalist has claimed that he along with Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Jordan Pickford will not be sold this summer.
“There has been plenty of speculation around Everton and who they will sell to raise funds this summer and a lot has been made of Jordan Pickford potentially being the one that brings in a lot of cash,” he told Give Me Sport.
“That actually goes against what I am hearing about the situation now that we are here in the middle of the transfer window and heading towards the new season.
“Pickford is not available for transfer, it seems a pretty clear stance from what I’m hearing.
“Obviously he and Calvert-Lewin are the two big names in that team that could make the jump up to a team playing in Europe, but I don’t see it happening as things stand.
“The same goes for Alex Iwobi to be honest, he is one they want as an instrumental figure in the team and while there have been a couple of reports suggesting he will be available in this window, I do not believe that to be the case.”
