Everton suffered a 1-0 defeat to Tottenham Hotspur on Monday night and Alex Iwobi was one of many players who underperformed. The 24-year-old failed to have a shot on target, didn’t see a lot of the ball and failed to create a chance, so it wasn’t a surprise to see him hauled off at half-time.

Everton's Cenk Tosun reacts to a missed chance v Southampton

Which club did Everton loan Cenk Tosun out to in January?

Against Tottenham, Iwobi played for 45 minutes, had 17 touches, completed 76.9% of his 13 passes and made one clearance. The Nigerian international was a bystander in London and continues to disappoint in his debut season at Goodison Park.

Iwobi joined Everton from Arsenal for £27.3m last summer and has gone on to make 26 appearances in all competitions, scoring two goals with one assist. The 24-year-old still has four more years on his deal, but it’s unlikely he’ll still be at Everton in 2024 if things don’t improve.

The Blues paid a tidy sum for Iwobi and he’s not delivering, so they’ve been on the hunt for potential replacements – Cengiz Under, Everton Soares, Wilfried Zaha, Memphis Depay, Jose Callejon, Rafa Silva, Jack Grealish, Everton Cebolinha Soares, Philippe Coutinho and Jesse Lingard.
