After the end of a football season, players are allowed some weeks of break before returning for preseason. Alex Iwobi, who plies his trade with Everton is putting his break into good use in Cannes France.
The midfielder, made this known through a recent post on his Instagram page where he was seen chilling with friends.
The Nigerian international is obviously putting his two weeks break into good use. Before action resumes in the Premier League in September, Iwobi will have some little time with friends before things get busy again in the English top flight.
Can Alex Iwobi form a partnership with Richarlison and Keane?
His debut season with the Merseyside club might not be all rosy, Iwobi is expected to form a formidable partnership with Moise Kean and Richarlison, who has been the club’s best player so far.
To do that, Iwobi, who can also play in the wings will have to replicate the form that convinced Arsene Wenger to give him first team chances in Arsenal before being sold to Everton by his successor, Unai Emery.
With age still on his side, next season might be the time he will justified the £40 million paid for his service by the Godison Park outfit.
He had scored 15 goals in 149 games for Arsenal before moving to Everton. He also opened his goals account for the Tofees in the Carabao Cup trip to Lincoln City. He also has one other goal in the Premier League.
What’s Iwobi’s net worth?
According to Forbes in his 2020 Updated report, Iwobi has an estimated net worth of $12 million as at January 2020.
The five-year Everton contract also landed him 4 Million Euro (3.5 Million Pound) per year. This means that the 24-year-old earns €10,929 (£9,692) per day and €455 (£404) per hour.
The Everton wage is an improvement from Arsenal. He was earning £70,000 at the Emirates, but he is currently taking home £120,000 every week in wages at Goodison Park. This puts him among the Toffees’ joint-highest earner, as he earns the same as Yerry Mina and Bernard.
