Everton agree terms over new Alex Iwobi contract

Everton agree terms over new Alex Iwobi contract -Everton News

Everton have reportedly agreed terms over a new contract extension for Alex Iwobi

The Lowdown: Iwobi’s season so far

So far this season, the 26-year-old has made 17 appearances for Frank Lampard’s side across all competitions.

Cementing himself as perhaps the only truly consistent performer in the Toffees’ midfield, Iwobi has scored one goal and delivered six assists across those showings.

Now that domestic football is set to return following the conclusion of the 2022 World Cup, some behind-the-scenes rumblings have been going on at Goodison Park in regards to Iwobi’s future at the club.

The Latest: New contract terms agreed

According to a recent report from Football Insider, Everton have agreed the terms of a ‘big money’ new contract with Iwobi after months of talks.

 

The report reveals a ‘breakthrough in negotiations’ ahead of the winter transfer window and claims a significant pay increase is coming the Nigerian’s way.

The Verdict: A good move from Everton

In addition to providing more assists in the league than any other Everton player this season, Iwobi has also made more progressive passes (49) and key passes (27) than anyone else in Lampard’s squad.

The former Arsenal figure has also shown how useful he can be off the ball as well as only Amadou Onana (20) has won more tackles in the middle third of the pitch than Iwobi (12).

His overall performances have earned the midfield maestro a season rating of 6.75/10 from WhoScored, making him the third-highest outfield player at the club.

This backs up why his performances this season have been lauded as “exceptional” by Frank Leboeuf. It also makes it easy to see why the Toffees have been so keen to tie the player down to a new deal at the club.

Taking all of this into account, if Iwobi does end up signing a new contract extension in the coming days, this will definitely be a big positive for the club.
