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.”
“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.
“It is time for me to make a name for myself, to try to become a big player.”
“I will have an opportunity at Everton to express myself, the manager and players have given me the freedom to do that. It is a new challenge and I am ready for it,” he concluded.
