Everton Sign Alex Iwobi On A 5-Years Deal For £40M

Everton have snapped up the signature of Nigerian international and
Arsenal star,Alex Iwobi.

Iwobi Signs for Everton on A 5 year deal for around £40M

Iwobi came through the ranks
at the Gunners, scoring 15 goals
in 149 games.
The Nigeria forward is Marco
Silva's seventh summer signing.
"Alex was one of our main
targets for this window and I
believe he is a fantastic signing.
He is a direct and skilful winger
and attacking midfielder who
always works very hard," the
Everton manager said.
"He is still young but already
with a lot of top-level
experience - 100 Premier
League matches, more in Europe
and many international games.
"Alex fits exactly the profile of
player I want. 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."
Iwobi - whose arrival was
announced more than four
hours after the window closed -
joins fellow new recruits
goalkeeper Jonas Lossl,
defender Djibril Sidibe,
midfielders Andre Gomes, Fabian
Delph and Jean-Philippe Gbamin,
and striker Moise Kean.
Everton had an initial bid of
£30m turned down but their
improved offer - an initial £28m,
rising to £34m with potential
add-ons - was accepted.
Iwobi featured regularly last
season under manager Unai
Emery, appearing in all but three
Premier League games, and he
scored in the Europa League
final defeat by Chelsea in what
was his last appearance for the
club.
