Iwobi Set To Sign New Everton Contract
Super Eagles forward Alex Iwobi is set to sign a new £100,000-a-week deal with Everton, according to the Sun.
Iwobi is now a key player under Frank Lampard and ready to pen a fresh three-and-a-half-year agreement.
The 26-year-old has just 18 months of his current £70,000-a-week contract left and the new one will take him to 2026.
A £38million signing from Arsenal in 2019, Iwobi was proving to be a flop at Goodison Park but he has completely turned around his fortunes.
Despite only scoring once this season, he has delivered a string of top performances and is one of the first names on Lampard’s team sheet.
A new deal for Iwobi is a lift for the Toffees, who have been hit by injuries.
Midfielder James Garner was ruled out for two months with a back problem.
The 21-year-old stayed behind when the club travelled to Australia for the Sydney Super Cup and Lampard said: “He’s probably going to be back at the back end of January or early February.
“It’s a disappointing injury.”
Fellow midfielder Tom Davies flew back early from Australia after suffering a knee problem in training.
And Colombian defender Yerry Mina strained a hamstring in the game against Celtic.
Everton currently sit 17th in the Premier League table after a poor start to the season.
Their first game back after the World Cup break is against struggling Wolverhampton Wanderers at Goodison Park.
