According to Toffees legend, Joseph Yobo, Alex Iwobi will have a better time playing for Everton than he would have playing for Arsenal.
Alex Iwobi debuted for Arsenal in 2015 in the English Premier League.
But now the 23-year-old has been acquired by Everton in a deal worth £40 million.
“I must commend Alex Iwobi for making that bold move. Everton is a quality team and I’m happy as an Evertonian that we acquired a talent like him,” said Toffees legend Joseph Yobo to Goal.
“I think the main reason behind this is his playing time and I’m sure he will get that but he has to work harder than what he does in Arsenal.”
“Apart from that, he’s got everything to succeed and I’m not surprised that huge bid was made for him,” he added.
“In my own opinion, it’s a good move because staying with Arsenal who brought in [Nicolas] Pepe will reduce his playing time. Here, he will learn more which will make him grow and more matured in the game.”
The former player commented: “If you want to put that into context, Nigeria do not play like Arsenal yet he plays very well and that’s why I say the Super Eagles will benefit from this move because we’ll see a better Iwobi.”
“Nigeria will benefit more because we will see a more tactically disciplined and physically fit Iwobi because his talent has always been there. And that will make him a more complete player.”
