Alexi Iwobi ventured to issue excuses that horrendous the public of London in the meantime, where he did not hesitate to share stories about his decision to move from Arsenal to Everton. His confession was quite surprising and sounded a little strange, the article he wanted to print his own name on the Premier League stage.
Iwobi surprisingly came to Everton at the end of the 2019 summer transfer window. Arsenal agreed to a transfer fee of 35 million Pounds from Everton to Iwobi, who finally signed a five-season contract ahead at Goodison Park.

Last season was Iwobi’s toughest season, where he rarely got playing time as a starter and played more from the bench. Under the tutelage of Unai Emery, Iwobi played 22 times in the Premier League.
Iwobi’s visit to Everton is because of coach Marco Silva, who hopes Iwobi can strengthen his team this season. Iwobi claimed to be happy and very challenged with Everton’s ambitions this season.
“The offer was too attractive for me to reject. The manager tells me, ‘There is a place for you, we will take care of you’. Basically, tell everything you want to hear as a player. “I’ve always been called a young player at Arsenal, so hopefully with this step I can make a name for myself in the Premier League and make history with Everton,” Iwobi said on Everton Television’s official website.
“Hopefully I can immediately give the best to the team, and I will try to be able to help them reach the peak of my career,”

Before Iwobi, there were names of world class players like Fabian Delph, Djibril Sidibe and also Moise Kean. Great hopes from Iwobi can grow even greater with Everton under Silva coaching.
“This moment is the biggest for Everton. I can see the transfers and the players they bring – some great talent. Not only me. There were quality players here before and they are still here. The coach has worked with Richarlison for a long time and made it grow. Hopefully he can do the same for me, and also Moise Kean and several other players who come. “Closed Iwobi.
