Exclusive: Marcus Bent expects Everton to offload Alex Iwobi this summer

Marcus Bent has exclusively told Football FanCast that Everton are likely to cash-in on Alex Iwobi.

Iwobi made the switch to Goodison Park in a £34m deal from boyhood club Arsenal two years ago, but despite making 66 appearances, has struggled to become first-choice.

Should Everton sign Pereira?

Yes please!

Yes please!

No thanks!

No thanks!

However, whilst Iwobi was signed by Marco Silva in the summer of 2019, he made several Premier League starts under Carlo Ancelotti.

But the 25-year-old has chipped in with just four goals and four assists across all competitions in those 66 outings, and simply hasn’t lived up to his price-tag.

Guess the obscure Everton players...who is standing next to Lookman?

Iwobi was a late substitute in Everton’s season-opening victory over Southampton, but already looks behind both Andros Townsend and Demarai Gray in the pecking order.

According to Italian outlet, Tuttomercatoweb believe that Serie A outlet Atalanta are keen on signing the former Arsenal academy graduate, and Bent told FFC, that he expects him to leave:

“Everton are talking about getting rid of him. They want to get him off the wage bill, he’s a good player, but hasn’t had the time to play or show his quality, but I think they want to move him on.”
