Iwobi as becoming Nigeria's most expensive player after and also Arsenal costliest selling star in the club history told Everton TV.

"I spoke to the manager and Marcel [Brands] and they almost lured me in,”

"The offer was too attractive for me to turn down. The manager was telling me, ‘There is a spot for you, we will take care of you,". Basically, all the things you want to hear as a player," 

"I always had that youngster tag at Arsenal, so hopefully with this move, I am able to make a name for myself in the Premier League and create history with Everton.”

Super Eagles star was one of the seven players brought in by Marco Silva during the summer transfer, joining Jean Philippe Gbamin, Moise Kean, Andre Gomes, Fabian Delph, goalkeeper Jonas Lossl and Djibril Sidibe.

Iwobi was not involved in the club's opening match for the season against Crystal Palace but might be in line for some action against Watford on Saturday.
