Everton Sign Alex Iwobi

Everton have completed the signing of Alex Iwobi from Arsenal for £35m.

The 23-year-old midfielder has signed a five-year deal at Goodison Park after a deal was agreed between the clubs on Deadline Day, with Everton paying £28m up front, plus up to £7m in additional fees.

Everton’s late move for Iwobi came as they failed in their pursuit of Crystal Palace winger Wilfried Zaha, but Toffees boss Marco Silva has insisted the Nigeria international had always been on his wishlist.

“Alex was one of our main targets for this window and I believe he is a fantastic signing for Everton,” Silva said.

“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.”

Iwobi is Everton’s seventh and final signing of the summer transfer window, following the additions of goalkeeper Jonas Lössl, right-back Djibril Sidibe, midfielders Andre Gomes, Fabian Delph and Jean-Philippe Gbamin, and striker Moise Kean.

Having come through Arsenal’s academy, Iwobi made his first-team debut in 2015 and went on to make 148 appearances, scoring 15 goals.

Iwobi could make his Everton debut when they begin their Premier League campaign away to Crystal Palace on Saturday.

  1. I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own blog and was curious what all is
    needed to get set up? I’m assuming having a blog
    like yours would cost a pretty penny? I’m not very internet smart so I’m not 100% sure.

    Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated.
