Everton may not have landed Wilfried Zaha before the transfer deadline, but they did at least manage to secure the signature of another winger.

The Toffees pivoted from Zaha to Alex Iwobi, and after having one bid rejected for the Arsenal man, Everton pushed through a deal in the final stages of the transfer window.

The Nigerian international, 23, showed signs of progress under Unai Emery last season, notching three goals and six assists in the Premier League.

 

Yet with Arsenal signing Nicolas Pepe in a big-money move, Iwobi has clearly felt that it's time to move on, and has made his move to Everton.

He'll be hoping that his decision is justified, and whilst he didn't feature against Crystal Palace on Saturday, he may play against Watford this weekend.

Ahead of that game, Iwobi has been in training with Marco Silva's side, and Everton posted a video of him in action, setting up former Arsenal teammate Theo Walcott with some fine skill.

Everton fans were impressed with Iwobi, feeling he looks sharp and should be utilised against Watford this weekend, with others simply shocked that Walcott was managing to score.

Arsenal supporters also had their say on two of their former players linking up, branding it 'heartbreaking' now they're away from North London and believe he has made a smart move that could lead to him proving Arsenal wrong for letting him go.
