Iwobi Explains Why He Quit Arsenal For Everton

Alex Iwobi has explained why he had to quit Arsenal for Everton in the summer transfer window.

The Nigerian admitted last month that he would consider leaving Arsenal if the planned arrival of Wilfried Zaha restricted his regular playing opportunities.

Despite the Crystal Palace winger remaining at Selhurst Park, Iwobi’s chances were potentially harmed by Nicolas Pepe joining.

And now Iwobi admits that he had to leave the Emirates Stadium to shake off the “youngster tag” he picked up while coming through the youth ranks at Arsenal.

“The offer was too attractive for me to turn down,” said Iwobi.

“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.

“He has given me the confidence I will do well. I am ready for a new challenge and chapter in my life.

“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.

“Hopefully I will be able to take on a bit more responsibility and add something to the team as well.”
