Arsenal Legend Kanu Wishes Iwobi Good Luck At Everton

Nwankwo Kanu has wished Alex Iwobi good luck following the 23-year-old’s move from Arsenal to Everton.

Iwobi agreed a five-year contract with Marco Silva’s men in a deal worth £40 million ($49m) that was disclosed on Thursday.

The Nigeria international has been a Gunner since joining the academy 15 years ago. Thanks to Arsene Wenger, he came through the ranks and made his senior team bow on October 2015.

He went on to make 148 appearances, scoring 15 goals winning one FA Cup and two FA Community Shields in the process.

Kanu, a club legend was among those to use social media to bid farewell to the departing forward, and claimed he would be supporting him.

“Once a Gunner, always a Gunner. We are proud of you Alex Iwobi and will continue to support you. Good luck with your new club,” he tweeted.

Iwobi joins Moise Kean in a new-look front line for the Toffees. He is expected to make his bow when Everton face Crystal Palace in their season opener on Saturday.

    Mr Rohr said he has a very competent scouting team. If they are that competent how come they haven’t seen joe Aribo who recently signed for Rangers from charlton athletic. I learnt he is willing and waiting for a call for the super Eagles. Please i want to implore fans go watch his goals and highlight on YouTube. This guy is the missing link in super Eagles midfield. If the NFF doesn’t get this boy quickly and allow England to go ahead and get him im done with super eagles and i will never ever forgive NNF for negligence
