Everton manager, Marco Silva, has challenged Super Eagles star, Alex Iwobi to continue his goalscoring form and maintain his “high quality” contribution to the Toffees.
Alexander Iwobi is gradually establishing himself as an influential figure at Goodison Park, following his £40 million move from Arsenal.
The 23-year-old midfielder has already scored 2 goals in his first 2 starts for Everton.
Marco Silva is confident the former Arsenal midfielder will boost his team’s attacking chances in the Premier League this season.
“It is something I will demand from him more and more. With the quality he has – I am 100 per cent sure he will give important things for us.
“He will give high quality in our attack. He can provide creativity playing from the left or behind the striker as an offensive midfielder.
“And if he can – and I am sure he can – score more goals, it will help the team. The first time I met with him, it was something I put in his mind [his ability to score goals].
“If you look at our wingers and the players in forward positions, it is something I demand from them.
“Richarlison scored many, many goals last season, Theo scored some. I want more from the other two [Iwobi and Bernard].
“Bernard started the season with a goal in the second game which was important for him. Alex has done the same thing now,” Silva told the club’s website.
