Iwobi has been at Arsenal since 2015, playing a total of 149 games and scoring 15 goals. He missed only three matches last season in the English League. For Everton, he is the seventh reinforcement behind goaltender Jonas Lössl, defender Djibril Sidibem, midfielder André Gomes, Fabian Delph and Jean-Philpp Gbamin and striker Moise Kean.
According to Deloitte, English football clubs playing the premier competition spent £ 1.41 billion (around CZK 39.5 billion) in the summer transfer period. Two hundred million pounds remained behind the record in 2017.
