Everton manager places high demand on Iwobi

Everton manager Marco Silva has placed a high demand on deadline day signing Alex Iwobi as the season progresses.

Iwobi has so far scored two goals, one each in Everton’s 4-2 Carabao Cup victory at Lincoln City and 3-2 Premier League success against Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Silva knows Iwobi has much to offer, and he has demanded the 23-year-old to give more.

“It is something I will demand from him more and more,” the manager told evertontv.

“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].”

Everton's next game is an away fixture against Bournmouth on Sunday.
