Super Eagles star, Alex Iwobi, has revealed why he ditched English Premier League side, Arsenal for Everton on the transfer deadline day.
The former Arsenal midfielder sealed an exit from the Emirates Stadium last Thursday as he joined Everton in a deal which is reportedly worth up to £40m (40,000,000 Pound sterling) if bonuses in the agreement are met.

Alex Iwobi revealed why he left Arsenal and how he aspires to make history at Goodison Park.
“I spoke to the manager and Marcel 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.
“It is exciting times for Everton. I was able to look at the transfers and players they have brought in – some great talent. It is not just me. There were quality players here before [the summer] and they are still here.
“The manager has worked with Richarlison for a long while and made a name for him. Hopefully, he can do the same for not just me but Moise Kean and a few others who came in too.”
