Alex Iwobi has revealed why he left Arsenal for Everton on deadline day.
Speaking to the club website about the move, Iwobi said he wants to “make a name” for himself and take on more responsibility.
“The offer was too attractive for me to turn down.
“The manager was telling me: ‘There is a spot for you, we will take care of you.’ Basically, all the things you want to hear as a player.
“He has given me the confidence I will do well. I am ready for a new challenge and chapter in my life. I always had that youngster tag at Arsenal, so hopefully with this move I am able to make a name for myself in the Premier League and create history with Everton.
“Hopefully I will be able to take on a bit more responsibility and add something to the team as well.
“It is exciting times for Everton.
“I was able to look at the transfers and players they have brought in – some great talent.
“It is not just me. There were quality players here before and they are still here.
“The manager has worked with Richarlison for a long while and made a name for him. “Hopefully he can do the same for not just me but Moise Kean and a few others who came in, too.”
