Arsenal legend Ian Wright has queried Everton’s decision to sell Alex Iwobi to Premier League rivals Fulham.
Iwobi ended his four-year stay at the Goodison Park after joining the Whites on transfer deadline day.
The Nigeria international struggled in his first two seasons at Everton but later found his rhythm.
The 27-year-old has played a key role in the club’s Premier League survival in the last two seasons.
The versatile midfielder was named Everton’s Player of the Season last term.
Wright expressed disappointment with Everton’s decision to allow Iwobi leave the club.
“Everton have sold, for me, arguably, their best creative player in the last couple of seasons in Iwobi,” Wright said in an interview on Premier League Productions.
“And they sold him to Fulham. This is the level they have dropped to.
“I am not disrespecting Fulham. We are talking about Rooney to Manchester United, talking about big players, and even Arteta going to Arsenal.”
“Players going to big clubs now. Everton are selling certain players, top players, to Fulham. That’s how far they have fallen off.”
Iwobi joined Everton from Arsenal in 2018.
The Nigeria international made his debut for Fulham in the 1-0 victory against Luton Town last weekend.
He replaced Harrison Reed in the 61st minute of the keenly contested encounter.
