Alex Iwobi feels like he’s found a”new home” in Everton following his Deadline Day transfer and discuses the way he has accommodated Merseyside.
The made a movement to Goodison Park which makes Arsenal – in which he has played since the age of eight – to unite Everton to get a #35m charge.
The Nigeria international claims he’s settled in well to his new environment, but doesn’t think there’s a lot of gap between Liverpool and London.
He told Soccer Saturday:”It is so far, so great, I feel as though I’ve got a new house and I’m very comfortable here.
“I got several phone calls [concerning the deal] and talked to my representative – it took on a day of speaking to the manager and speaking to Marcel Brands. It was hard and I got convinced.
“I was very comfortable [in Arsenal] and I was on holiday so I didn’t think about any movement. I got the phone and thought about if this would be a chance for me to improve myself as a player. I thought this is a major opportunity and I should not turn down it. I’ve got no regrets about this choice.
“The fantasy which Marco Silva has also persuaded me to come – the driveway, what he would like to achieve and how he saw me in his aims, I feel as I am ready to help him do that. Even he demanding, constantly hoping to find the most and it’s very good for your team.
“I have not seen much of a difference [between Liverpool and London] however, what that I struggle with is that the accent here. If Duncan [Ferguson] spoke to me first, I had to hear and participate and I wasn’t certain so I just agreed what he’d said. It’s adapting to that but it’s nearly the exact same as being at London.
“So far, I’ve been treated really well. It’s a family club and everybody treats you like familymembers. Despite the fact that it’s different to Arsenal, I’m enjoying it.”
Iwobi has made three appearances for Everton thus far and has scored – both headers. The 23-year-old admits that it is not his very best way of discovering the net, but is very happy to get off the mark because of his new team.
“To score against Lincoln and score against individuals with my head, which is a bit different, it is a great feeling and hopefully there is more to come,” he further added.
“I just formally had just one header for Arsenal two per week is not bad. We had a few drills with finishing and crossing and also my going wasn’t the best – I had some that went crazy. So for me to score just two, they were all laughing at me saying’wow’. But as long as it goes in, it doesn’t matter, that is exactly what I told them.
“Wherever I go, I’ll always do my best to get the club and Everton would be the club I am representing. I feel at home and I will always wish to reveal that I feel like a Evertonian now.”
Up for Everton is a trip to Bournemouth – live on Sky Sports – but Iwobi understands it won’t be a simple game on the south coast.
He explained:”It’s another game and another large chance to receive three things. It’s not going to be easy, Bournemouth have great players too but we will compete and try and get a outcome.”
