Everton Sign Alex Iwobi

Everton have signed Alex Iwobi from Arsenal in one of the most significant late moves of deadline day.

The Nigerian player was signed for £34m.

Iwobi came through the ranks at the Gunners, playing 149 times and scoring 15 goals.

The Nigeria forward is Marco Silva’s seventh summer signing.

Iwobi will join fellow new arrivals goalkeeper Jonas Lossl, defender Djibril Sidibe, midfielders Andre Gomes, Fabian Delph and Jean-Philippe Gbamin, and striker Moise Kean.

The move for Iwobi – who shook hands on a five-year contract – improves Silva’s attacking options, but he looks worrying short of cover in defence going into the new season.
