Alex Iwobi has penned a heartfelt message to Arsenal fans after completing his move to Everton.
The Nigerian winger joined the Toffees on deadline day after the clubs agreed a £35 million deal, with an initial £28m to be paid up front and a further £7m dependant on bonuses.
Iwobi had been with the Gunners for 17 years, having joined the club at the tender age of six and progressing through the club’s academy.
Posting on his Twitter account, Iwobi wrote: “I Grew Up Dreaming Of Playing For Arsenal, Following In The Footsteps Of Some Of My Hero’s [sic]. I’m Proud To Say That @ 23 I’ve Achieved One Of My Dreams.
“From Playing For Arsenal Kids To 149 Senior Appearances. It Was An Honour To Play For The Club I Supported As A Boy. I’ve Enjoyed Every Minute Of It.”
