Former West Bromwich Albion and Super Eagles defender, Ifeanyi Udeze, has advised Everton winger, Alex Iwobi to leave the club after failing to secure sufficient game time with the Premier League side.
Iwobi, 24, joined Everton last year for £28 million after ending his stay with Arsenal. But he has struggled to make much of an impact with the club.
Surprisingly he was not included in the starting line up or bench in Everton’s 1-0 victory over Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday and Udeze who is now a broadcaster with Brila Fm feels it is time the Super Eagles star to leave.
“I think Iwobi should look for another club especially with James Rodriguez signed it will be difficult for him to play,” Udeze said on Brila FM.
“Imagine against Tottenham he did not make the bench and even the squad. So for me, he should start looking for another club.
“It’s painful for me but as it is, I think the best thing is for him to go elsewhere.”
Iwobi made 100 Premier League appearances for Arsenal following his promotion to the first team in 2015 before leaving the side for Everton.
Iwobi has featured for England U16, U17 and U18 before switching his allegiance to the Nigeria national team in October 2015.
