Everton midfielder Gyfil Sigurdsson has hailed new signing Alex Iwobi for his quick impact since joining the team from Arsenal.
Speaking on the Club’s summer arrivals, Sigurdsson believes Iwobi is gradually playing himself into the heart of the Everton faithful and added that player will grow in confidence as the season progresses.
“Of course, for him (Iwobi), for an attacking player, it’s nice to get that first goal early on.
“It’s good for the confidence and all of the other boys, not just him, [with] Fabian [Delph] coming back from injury and Djibril [Sidibe, who made his Everton debut against Lincoln City] there’s good depth in the squad at the moment.
“Hopefully, the boys who have been injured and not in the squad can really push us because we need every player in the squad.”
Iwobi, who has scored two goals so far for Everton, is in the camp of Super Eagles ahead of an international friendly against Ukraine on Tuesday.
