Super Eagles and Everton midfielder Alex Iwobi’s future hangs in the balance, with a potential move to Fulham drawing closer as the transfer deadline approaches, MySportDab reports.
Manager Sean Dyche remains cautious amidst reports of the £20 million deal between the Premier League clubs.
Iwobi’s absence from Everton’s recent EFL Cup match due to injury has done little to quell the transfer rumors. When asked about the situation, Dyche responded succinctly, dismissing it as “noise at the moment.
The uncertainty at Everton is heightened by Iwobi’s reluctance to sign a new contract, making him a free agent at the season’s end. This potential departure is a concern for Everton, considering their substantial investment in him two years ago.
While Dyche would prefer to keep Iwobi, the club’s pragmatic stance sees them willing to offload him to Fulham. The timing of these discussions, however, irks supporters as Everton scrambles to secure a replacement with limited time left before the transfer window closes.
Iwobi, a consistent presence in Everton’s lineup last season, received the Players’ Player of the Season award. His potential departure would leave a significant void, complicating the club’s challenges in both defense and attack.
As Everton navigates various concerns, Dyche faces the additional task of shoring up the midfield due to Iwobi’s impending exit. The situation remains fluid as the transfer deadline looms, leaving Everton with much to address in a short span.
