0 92

Everton have opened talks with Alex Iwobi over a new contract following the 26-year-old’s impressive start to the season.

The Nigerian is one of a number of stars the Merseyside club are trying to tie down as they look to offer new deals to Jordan Pickford and Anthony Gordon as well, reports The Athletic.

Iwobi’s importance at Everton has grown under the management of Frank Lampard as the 26-year-old is now a regular starter having been converted from a winger into a midfielder by the former Chelsea boss.

The Nigerian international’s current deal expires in 2024 with talks over a new contract still at an early stage but is set to ramp up in the coming weeks, according to The Athletic.
