Everton midfielder Alex Iwobi will reportedly decide whether to accept a new contract offer next week.

Everton midfielder Alex Iwobi will reportedly make a decision over his Everton future next week.

The Nigeria international has spent four years with the Toffees after completing a transfer from Arsenal in the summer of 2019.

Iwobi has established himself as a key part of the side, starting all 38 Premier League matches of the 2022-23 campaign.

The 27-year-old showcased his versatility throughout the season, operating in central midfield as well as in wide areas.

With Iwobi's contract set to expire in the summer of 2024, Everton are keen to tie down the player to a long-term contract.

The Toffees have already presented Iwobi with a contract offer, but he was reluctant to make a decision until Everton's Premier League status was confirmed.

Sean Dyche's side managed to stave off relegation on the final day of the season, beating Bournemouth 1-0 at Goodison Park thanks to Abdoulaye Doucoure's second-half strike.

With Premier League survival secured, Everton are now waiting to hear whether Iwobi will put pen to paper on an extension.

According to Football Insider, the former Arsenal man will decide whether to accept Everton's proposal next week.

The Toffees paid £28m to sign Iwobi from the Gunners in 2019, plus an additional £7m in add-ons since his arrival at Goodison Park.

They will be hoping that Iwobi decides to stay and protect their investment rather than risk losing him on a free transfer next year.

Iwobi, who has 63 caps for Nigeria, featured in 149 games for Arsenal, where he worked his way through the academy ranks.

Since joining the Toffees, the midfielder has scored nine goals and provided 16 assists in 138 appearances in all competitions.
