Fenerbahce want to sign Everton ace Alex Iwobi and put deadline on transfer

Fenerbahce are reportedly keen on securing the services of Everton attacker Alex Iwobi who has been in tremendous form this season.

According to Aspor [2 March], they even want the deal done by this Sunday, 5 March as they’re keen on bringing him to Turkey.

Iwobi has been everpresent for the Toffees this season, playing in central midfield under Frank Lampard and now out wide with Sean Dyche in charge.

No chance

Everton are going to do whatever it takes to keep Iwobi and there’s no chance that he decides to leave the club in the middle of the season.

It does him no good to agree on a deal elsewhere when a lot can change from now until the end of the campaign.

A new owner could come in and soon this side can realistically think of finishing in the top half next season.

Right now, like the rest of the side, Iwobi’s main focus will be on keeping the team in the Premier League and that’s what he will be thinking about.

Of course, if Everton get relegated he might consider leaving but that’s to be discussed then and not now as right now there are more pressing issues at hand.

We do not see Everton also accepting any bids in the middle of the season so Fenerbahce might as well be ready to miss out on their deadline.
