Everton manager Marco Silva said: "Alex was one of our main targets for this window and I believe he is a fantastic signing for Everton. He is a direct and skilful winger and attacking midfielder who always works very hard for his team.

"He is still young but already with a lot of top-level experience - 100 Premier League matches, more in Europe and many international games.

"It was important for me to have one more quality option for our attacking positions to add to what we have with Richarlison, Bernard and Theo Walcott.

"Alex fits exactly the profile of player I want in my model. He is hungry to join Everton and take the next step in his career, to help us compete with the strongest teams in the league and reach his potential at our club."

Arsenal thanked Iwobi for his services. "Everyone at Arsenal thanks Alex for his contribution and wish him all the best," the statement reads.

Iwobi came through the ranks at Arsenal and enjoyed four seasons in North London, playing 149 games and scoring 19 goals.
