And Yobo, 2013 AFCON winning captain, outlined influential role Iwobi will play for the Eagles.

“Alex is a big, big player for us in the national team,” Yobo told evertonfc.com.

“He trains hard every day – he is our game-changer. When things are hard, he can change things for us.

“He works his socks off and, technically, he is very good.

“He has the skill and the energy to run at players and track back, he can do all that. And he has an eye for goal.

“He is very important for Nigeria and I believe he can be for Everton, too.”

Yobo went on to highlight Iwobi’s adaptability as a key strength. 

“If you need somebody to take on players and work back, Alex is better out wide,” Yobo explained.

“If you need somebody to do a bit of magic, without being predictable, then he can be a good option behind the striker. He does that very well for the national team.

“It depends on the formation and what you are trying to achieve, but he is very versatile.

“Alex is young but has played a lot of football and is experienced. He knows when to drop in and what do in different situations.

“I like him a lot. I am a big fan of Alex’s.”
