Iwobi becomes Everton’s seventh signing

Everton have signed Alex Iwobi from Premier League rivals Arsenal for £40m. The 23-year-old, Nigerian attacking midfielder is Everton’s seventh signing of the summer after they completed deals for Jonas Lössl, Djibril Sidibe, Andre Gomes, Fabian Delph, Jean-Philippe Gbamin, and Moise Kean.

The Toffees’ coach, Marco Silva, told the club’s official website:

“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 skillful winger and attacking midfielder who always works very hard for his team.”
