A key member of the midfield setup at Premier League outfit Everton is primed to put pen to paper on a new contract, according to reports.
The Toffees star in line for fresh terms at the club? Alex Iwobi.
Former Arsenal man Iwobi has of course continued to prove his many doubters wrong over the course of the season to date.
Since being moved into a more central role in the middle of the park by Frank Lampard, Iwobi has looked completely rejuvenated, finally resembling a player worthy of the hefty sum forked out for his signature back in the summer of 2019.
In turn, as alluded to above, it should come as little surprise to hear of such efforts looking set to see the Nigerian international imminently rewarded by those in a position of power at Goodison Park.
As per a report from transfer expert Fabrizio Romano, negotiations between the two parties are now ‘well advanced’, heading towards the ‘final stages’.
Iwobi’s long-term renewal, expected to feature a considerable pay rise, is therefore expected to be made official at some point over the coming weeks.
