Iwobi opens up on stressful transfer deadline day move to Everton

Alex Iwobi has opened up on a stressful move from Arsenal to Everton on transfer deadline day.

The Nigerian international joined Everton for £40m following Nicolas Pepe’s £72m arrival from Ligue 1 club, Lille.

Iwobi was holidaying in Dubai at the time but had to go through a stressful process trying to seal the move.

“Everything was getting sent to my hotel,” he told The Times.

“I had to sign stuff by scan and sent it back. It was crazy.

“The people in the hotel had no idea of what was happening, they recognised me as an Arsenal player and they were saying, ‘how’s Arsenal, How’s everything going there.”

Iwobi has made eight appearances for the Toffees in all competition this season, scoring two goals.
