Alex Iwobi wants to make a name for himself at Everton

Former Arsenal youngster Alex Iwobi wants to leave his Gunners days behind and make a name for himself in his new Premier League club.

23-year-old Alex Iwobi played for Arsenal from 2015 to 2019.

He is also a product of the Gunners youth system. But while there, he was always called a “youngster.”

Now that he has been transferred to Everton, he wants to make a name for himself.

“From the moment I came here, I was welcomed really nicely and I feel like an Evertonian,” Iwobi told Goal.

“I am proud to be here and I want to show my teammates and the fans that I will give 100 percent for them.”

He added: “It was good to open my account. The position I play – the main thing you get noticed for is goals and assists.”

Unai Emery offers Mesut Ozil hope over Arsenal role

Unai Emery has offered Mesut Ozil hope of a return to his line-up by stating he's got the required quality for Arsenal's upcoming matches.

“It is not the first time I’ve heard it [the manager’s demand for him to score more]. I even set myself targets each game to at least create a chance or try to have shots on goal.”

“I want to better myself and it [scoring and assisting] is something I want to work at. I came through at Arsenal and was probably always viewed as a youngster for that reason,” the Nigerian international said.
