New Everton signing Alex Iwobi has been given five days to prove his fitness ahead of the Premier League clash with Watford at the weekend.

Everton host Watford at Goodison Park on Saturday and Alex Iwobi could make his debut for the Toffees following his big-money move from fellow Premier League outfit Arsenal but the Super Eagles player will have to prove himself according to manager Marco Silva.

Alex Iwobi made a surprising deadline day move from Arsenal to Everton in a £40m deal, making him the most expensive sale in the history of the Gunners.

He was not involved in preseason with Arsenal before the transfer to Everton on the back of his busy summer with the Super Eagles of Nigeria.

Alex Iwobi was a key member of the Nigerian squad that finished the 2019 African Cup of Nations (AFCON) tournament in Egypt with a bronze medal.

The 23-year-old came through the ranks at Arsenal before making his debut for the Gunners in October 2015.

He was at Arsenal for 15 years before the recent move to Merseyside.

Alex Iwobi scored 15 goals for Arsenal during his time with the first team including six goals in all competitions for the Gunners last season.
