Everton winger Alex Iwobi has told Sky Sports that he does not regret his departure from Arsenal.

Iwobi, who can also operate as a forward, came through the youth academy at Arsenal and played over 100 games in all competitions for the Gunners.

Then in the summer of 2019, when Unai Emery was in charge of Arsenal, the North London club sold the Nigeria international to Premier League rivals Everton for an initial transfer fee reported by BBC Sport to be worth £28 million.

Iwobi has reflected on his departure from Arsenal, and has said that he has no regrets over his exit.

The Everton attacker told Sky Sports: “It’s tough going from that at Arsenal. One manager, obviously Unai Emery came, and yeah it was a bit different because there was a lot of different methods, things were getting changed, positions, formations, and I have had to play in numerous positions, so maybe I was a bit unsettled, but I don’t really want to say like an argument or problem because at the end of the day, as footballers, we should be able to cope with the situation.

“Maybe I should have handled it better, but whether what happened in the past has made me who I am today, so there’s no regrets.”
