Everton face defender fight

22 August 2011 09:30
Everton face a new battle to keep hold of star defender Phil Jagielka as Arsenal are set to make a renewed bid to land him. David Moyes has little, if any, money to spend on new players but he is determined to keep hold of his star names at the club and centre half Jagielka falls into that bracket. Arsenal on the other hand have cash to spare but are in danger of falling into crisis after a poor start to the campaign and there is increasing pressure on Arsene Wenger to add some proven quality to his squad.Arsenal have had bids of £10m and £12m turned down for Jagielka with Everton reluctant to sell but a renewed bid from the Gunners could prove difficult to turn down.
