Alex Iwobi has said his best position at Everton is as a winger while he prefers to be either a number 10 or number 8 for Nigeria.
The 25-year-old has been deployed into different positions since he left Arsenal in 2019 for Goodison Park.
During his early days, Iwobi was compared with his legendary uncle, Austin ‘Jay Jay’ Okocha, who was a playmaker in his active days.
But Iwobi has told Everton’s official website:
“I think playing different roles has helped me to understand the game a bit more, especially those defensive roles. I’m not going to complain – playing right wing-back, right midfield, left midfield, I’ll play anywhere and I’ll always give my best.
“My aim is to get more goals and assists but if I’m asked to do it at right wing-back, then I’ll do it and try my best!
“I think, for Everton, my best position for the team is probably out wide. For my national team, it’s completely different and I do like playing in the midfield as a number 8 or number 10.
“I feel like I can play in any position. For each manager and each team, it’s going to be different.”
