Alex Iwobi has revealed he left Arsenal to join Everton because he wants to “make a name” for himself and take on more responsibility.
Iwobi, 23, ended a 15-year spell with the Gunners this summer as he joined Everton on Deadline Day.
He made 148 senior appearances for Arsenal but was not considered a regular first-choice starter under Unai Emery.
Speaking about his move to Everton, he told the club website: “The offer was too attractive for me to turn down.
“The manager was telling me: ‘There is a spot for you, we will take care of you’. Basically, all the things you want to hear as a player.
