Everton confirm the signing of Alex Iwobi for an undisclosed fee

Everton has completed the signing of Arsenal’s attacking midfielder, Alex Iwobi on a permanent deal. The deal said to be “undisclosed” by Everton, has been rumoured to be about £40million and on a five year deal that will keep him at the club till June 2024.

The transfer of Alex Iwobi from his childhood club to Everton, as come as a shock to many, given that he rose from the academy as a nine year old to break into the senior team years later.

Some fans felt Ozil should have been sold instead of the 23-year-old Nigerian who still has alot of potentials in him, and could be the future of Arsenal. But the club are obviously thinking in a different direction, believing in experience rather than youths.

Alex Iwobi is the 7th player Everton have signed this transfer window, after bringing in goalkeeper Jonas Lössl, right-back Djibril Sidibe, midfielders Andre Gomes, Fabian Delph and Jean-Philippe Gbamin, and striker Moise Kean.

Everton manager Marco Silva while speaking on the new man, said:
“Alex was one of our main targets for this window and I believe he is a fantastic signing for Everton. He is a direct and skilful winger and attacking midfielder who always works very hard for his team.

“He is still young but already with a lot of top-level experience – 100 Premier League matches, more in Europe and many international games.

“It was important for me to have one more quality option for our attacking positions to add to what we have with Richarlison, Bernard and Theo Walcott.

“Alex fits exactly the profile of player I want in my model. He is hungry to join Everton and take the next step in his career, to help us compete with the strongest teams in the league and reach his potential at our club.” He said.
