Alex Iwobi joins Everton

Arsenal has sold the home grown left winger Alex Iwobi on transfer deadline day, he has been with the Gunners since the age of eight and played more than 50 games in all competitions last season.

Arsenal originally rejected a £30m bid from fellow Premier League club Everton earlier this week. JuanAFC believe that the Gunners didn’t want to see Iwobi go, but they agree to a sale after an offer beween 35 & 40 millions for the 23-year-old (five-year contract) .

The versatile star broke into the Arsenal first team under former manager Arsene Wenger during 2015/16 and scored two goals in his first two Premier League starts later that season.

He remained a fringe player under Wenger for two more years, but the arrival of Unai Emery last summer brought Iwobi into a more prominent role and he played in 35 of the club’s 38 Premier League fixtures. In fact, no one at the club played more than Iwobi’s 51 games.

However, the £72m record summer arrival of Nicolas Pepe from Lille, in addition to existing forwards Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, has brought a new level of competition for places ahead of the 2019/20 campaign.

Our opinion:
Iwobi bombshell really killed any and all hype I had going into the new season. It’s a massive mistake. Come January when fatigue sets in and we’re starting Mkhitaryan away at Old Trafford you’ll all realise the implications of this.

He has everything to become a world class winger. In about two years you’ll see the same twats who mocked/abused him telling the world how it was a big
mistake to sell him. Anyway, I wish him well at Everton. Damn!
