Super Eagles Star Iwobi Offered New 5 Year Contract at Everton


Premier League side Everton remain confident of tying up a new long-term deal for former arsenal midfielder Alex Iwobi. The Super Eagles star has less than two years to run on his current contract with the Toffees, whom he joined from boyhood club Arsenal in the summer of 2019 for a fee of £35m.

Everton is holding contract talks with Iwobi and his camp; and the midfielder will put pen to paper on a fresh five-year contract if terms can be agreed. The Goodison Park outfit is making plans for the future and considers the Nigerian an integral part of the project.

Iwobi struggled in his first few seasons at Everton so much that he was heavily criticized by fans and pundits alike but he has found some form since the appointment of legendary Chelsea midfielder Frank Lampard as coach.

The 26-year-old has flourished in a new midfield role, leading the club’s assists chart with six in all competitions so far this season, including five to his name in the Premier League second only to Manchester city and Belgian midfielder kevin de bruyne.

Having proven his worth this year, Everton has rewarded him with a new deal and it’s up to him to accept or reject the offer.
