Arsenal refuse to meet Everton price for Jagielka

Arsenal are struggling to find agreement with Everton for defender Phil Jagielka.

Arsenal are struggling to find agreement with Everton for defender Phil Jagielka.

The Daily Mail says discussions with Everton over an improved £15million offer for Jagielka are in deadlock.

The Gunners have already had a £12million bid refused by the Toffees but are keen to strike a deal for Jagielka.

Everton want around £18million for Jagielka but Arsenal are hesitant to even go as high as £15m given the fact he is 29 this month.

Sources close to Jagielka have told the Daily Mail that the central-defender is resigned to staying at Goodison Park given Arsenal's reluctance to pay part with the £15million that would give them a chance of signing him.
