New Everton recruit Alex Iwobi will wear the number 17 jersey at the club on the back of his deadline day transfer from fellow Premier League outfit Arsenal.

His shirt number was confirmed by Everton via their various social media accounts.

Alex Iwobi wore the same jersey number during his time at Arsenal.

His time at Arsenal ended on Thursday after joining Everton in a deal reported to be around £40m.

His transfer was one of the most surprising during the just concluded Premier League window.

Alex Iwobi has been at Arsenal since the tender age of eight.

The Super Eagles player spent 15 years at Arsenal until his move to Everton earlier this week.

Alex Iwobi came through the Arsenal Academy before making his first team debut on October 2015.

He was handed his first ram debut by former manager Arsene Wenger.

Alex Iwobi thrived under the legendary Arsenal manager especially in the early stages of his first team career.

He scored 15 goals for the Gunners during his time at the club.

His time at Arsenal ended with just one major trophy.

Alex Iwobi was part of the Arsenal squad that won the 2017 FA Cup title via a 2-1 extra time win over London rivals Chelsea in the final.
