REVEALED: Everton midfielder Alex Iwobi: Why I chose to leave Arsenal

Everton midfielder Alex Iwobi has opened up on his exit from Arsenal in 2019.

Iwobi admits the signing of Nicolas Pepe convinced him it was time to leave.

In an interview with The Beautiful Game Podcast, he said: “Arsenal just signed a new winger [Nicolas Pepe] and there were a few players there who were not ready to go.

“So they said ‘we have received a bid for you, it’s a high bid, we’re not going to get this sort of money from anywhere else.

“It was a nudge, it’s a winger as well someone who is probably going to play in your position. It’s up to you sort of thing.

“So I thought ‘cool, they have given me that and Everton’s a club that’s a very big club that wants me’. I want a new challenge so why not pursue it.”
