Iwobi’s Value Drops from €32m To €25.5m; Osimhen, Chukwueze, Ndidi’s Too

Super Eagles play-maker, Alex Iwobi has seen his market value drop by as much as €6.5m and that is €32m to €25.5m, according to transfermarkt.com which officially rates every player.

The Nigeria international is a supremely talented player but has failed to show the world what he has inside his locker and ever since joining Everton last summer, he has failed to shine.

Apart from a strong display agaínst a Norwich City side which is now relegated, the former Arsenal attacker has been a reliable source of energy and creativity since the season restarted.

In his first season at Goodison Park, underwhelming and uninspiring performances from Iwobi has cast major doubts on the reason the club hierarchy paid as much as £34 million for his service.

In fact, there is a very serious argument that the Super Eagles forward needs to be dropped 25 out of the team as soon as possible and replaced by a much more competent and reliable winger.

Iwobi has netted once in 24 EPL games while his goal drought in the competition extended to 22 matches. Ironically, his only EPL goal this season was in a 3-2 win over Wolverhampton Wanderers last August.

The Nigerian players whose market values dropped significantly are Ahmed Musa, Wilfred Ndidi, Alex Iwobi and Henry 0nyekuru by €10m, €9m, €7.5m and €5m respectively, according to Transfermarkt.

Some other Super Eagles stars whose valuations dropped are Lille striker, Victor Osimhen, Villareal forward, Samuel Chukwueze and Torino defenter, Ola Aina by an estimate of €3m respectively.

  • I was made ton believe iwobI i’s another okocha. Wat I might seeing is not iwobi

    Iwobi is iwobi and he is very good, with better player management and on field placement he will score goals.

      Thumbs up man @ Chima. I have stopped watching Everton play. Anccelotti doesn’t seem to know what he is doing. Just a shame Iwobi allowed money to seduce him into playing for a team that’s traditionally defensive. Players must learn to choose clubs that suit their style of play. That could just be the reason JJ Okocha didn’t bother about playing for so called big clubs. Players with flair, like JJ, Ronaldinho, Kanu, Victor Moses, Iwobi etc will lose their motivation to play when you start bothering them with defending. These are not cut out to defend but gifted to tear down opponents defences. I will continue to fault Iwobi accepting to pitch tent with Everton.
