Journalist Alex Crook has now said that Everton midfielder Alex Iwobi could genuinely leave Goodison Park before this week’s transfer deadline.
Speaking on the talkSPORT YouTube channel, Crook said: “This has got legs. Iwobi only has a year on his contract, Everton are trying to give Sean Dyche the resources to rebuild the squad. If they can sell Iwobi, I think they are open to doing that.
There is rumours of another Premier League club also interested in Iwobi but I think at the moment Fulham would be the front runners.”
Everton can afford to sell Alex Iwobi if they reinvest well and quickly
The ‘exceptional’ Iwobi has just one year remaining on his current deal at Everton and if the Blues can cash in on the inconsistent 27-year-old, then it could be good business provided they reinvest well.
Sean Dyche has brought in five players so far this summer as he looks to rebuild Everton’s squad, with an emphasis on the Toffees’ attacking output.

Alex Iwobi is frustrating but also one of Everton’s most creative players, it is only since Dyche’s appointment that he has been played on the wing after a period playing centrally, where he looked far more comfortable.
With that in mind, recouping some money from the club’s investment in Iwobi to fund another incoming for Sean Dyche would be smart business from Everton.
