Alex Iwobi has been honoured with the Everton Players’ Player of the Season award following his remarkable performance throughout the campaign, which played a crucial role in helping the Toffees secure their Premier League status.
Maintaining his impressive form from the previous season, Iwobi showcased his versatility by excelling in various positions on the field and recording an impressive tally of eight assists, the highest among all Everton players. Additionally, the Nigerian international contributed two goals in 41 appearances across all competitions during the 2022/23 season.
Although Everton has extended a contract offer that would bind Iwobi to the club for another four seasons, reports suggest that he has yet to make a decision regarding the contract.
The Merseyside club has faced struggles with form and consistency in recent seasons and narrowly escaped relegation from the topflight for three consecutive years.
Iwobi’s presence was felt throughout the season as he started in every Premier League match for Everton, with only three exceptions against Newcastle (73′), Aston Villa (70′), and Nottingham Forest (83′).
Furthermore, in addition to the Players’ Player of the Season accolade, Jordan Pickford received his second consecutive Player of the Season award, while Iwobi emerged as the top choice among his teammates for the Players’ Player of the Season honuor.
