Former Everton defender, Joleon Lescott, says he is shocked that Arsenal could allowed Nigerian international, Alex Iwobi, join Everton.
The Super Eagles forward made a shock switch to the Merseyside club on transfer deadline day for £34m after the team failed to sign Ivorian forward Wilfried Zaha.
Speaking to Sky sport, the former Everton defender said,
“I’m thinking they are the next team to break into the top tier, possibly this season. I’m a big fan of Iwobi. I’m surprised Arsenal let him go.”
“Iwobi seems to play with good energy and desire that fans want to see regardless. He seems to be running at his maximum every time he gets the ball, which will only hold him as a fans’ favourite at Everton.”
With the signing of six new players, Lescott, believes that on the overall, Everton spent well during the summer transfer window.
“I’m excited for Everton this season, I think they’ve spent well in areas that they needed to.”
