Alex Iwobi feels like he has discovered a”new house” at Everton following his Deadline Day movement and discuses how he has adapted to Merseyside.
The made a movement to Goodison Park a month, leaving Arsenal – where he has played since the age of eight – to connect Everton to get a #35m charge.
The international says he has settled in nicely to his new environment, but does not believe there is much difference between London and Liverpool.
He told Soccer Saturday:”It is so far, so great, I feel as though I have a new home and I am very comfortable .
“I got a few phone calls [concerning the deal] and talked to my representative – it took about a day of talking to the supervisor and speaking to Marcel Brands. It was not really hard and I got confident.
“I was very comfortable [at Arsenal] and I was on vacation so I did not think any movement. I received the call and thought about if this would be a chance for me to improve myself. I presumed this was a big opportunity and that I should not turn down it. I have no regrets.
“The fantasy which Marco Silva has persuaded me – the driveway, what he wants to achieve and the way he watched me in his plans, I feel like I’m able to help him do that. Even he’s consistently demanding, constantly trying to get the most out of us and it is fantastic for your group.
“I haven’t seen a great deal of difference [between Liverpool and London] however the thing I struggle with is that the accent . If Duncan [Ferguson] spoke to me I needed to hear and participate and that I was not certain so I agreed, what he had said. Aside from that, it’s almost the same as being in London although it’s adapting to this.
“So far, I have been treated really well. It’s a family club and everyone treats you like family. Although it’s different to Arsenal, I’m enjoying it.”
Iwobi has made three appearances for Everton much and has scored – . The 23-year-old admits that it is not his very best method of discovering the net, but is pleased to get off the mark for his new team.
“To score against Lincoln and rating against squirrels along with my head, which is somewhat different, it is an excellent feeling and there is more to come,” he added.
“I just formally had a single header for Arsenal two in a week isn’t bad. We had a few drills with crossing and completing and my going was not the greatest – I had a few who went . So for me to score 2, they were all laughing at me saying’wow’. But as long as it belongs, it does not matter, that’s what I told them.
“Wherever I go, I’ll always do my best to get the club and Everton are the club I am representing. I feel at home and I’ll always want to reveal that I feel like a Evertonian now.”
Next up for Everton is really a trip to Bournemouth – live on Sky Sports – however Iwobi understands it will not be an easy match on the south coast.
He explained:”It is a different game and another large opportunity to receive three things. It is not going to be simple, Bournemouth have got great players too but we’ll compete and try and find a result.”
