Alex Iwobi

Everton forward Alex Iwobi has revealed why he left Arsenal to join the Toffees on deadline day of the Premier League transfer window.

In his latest interview monitored by the Daily Post, Alex revealed that the lure of becoming a household name in the Premier League was the motive behind his transfer from boyhood club Arsenal to Everton.

The Super Eagles player is hoping that the move to Everton will ignite his career as a footballer.

Alex Iwobi could make his debut for Everton when they host Watford in a Premier League game at the weekend.

The Nigerian international signed a five-year deal with the Toffees until the end of the 2023/24 season.

Everton had agreed on a £40m transfer with Arsenal for the player.

It was their second bid after the first bid of £30m was rejected by the Gunners.

Alex Iwobi joined Arsenal at the age of eight and he came through the ranks before making his first team debut in October 2015.

He made more appearances than any other Arsenal player last season under the guidance of Unai Emery (52 appearances).

His last appearance for the Gunners turned out to be the Europa League final which ended in a 4-1 defeat for Arsenal against London rivals Chelsea.

Alex Iwobi scored the only goal of the game for Arsenal.
