The Nigeria international is about to bring an end to his four-year spell at Goodison Park
Everton and Fulham have sealed an agreement on the transfer of Super Eagles midfielder Alex Iwobi, Soccernet.ng reports.
According to transfer guru Fabrizio Romano, the transfer of the former Arsenal midfielder to Fulham is a ‘done deal’.
According to Romano, Fulham have agreed to pay Everton £22 million (including add-ons) for the services of the Nigeria international.

The 27-year-old midfield ace is already booked for a medical later today, with all the contracts expected to be signed before tonight’s transfer deadline.
Iwobi joined Everton in the summer of 2019, shortly after helping Nigeria to a bronze medal finish at that year’s Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt.
He was widely believed to have not lived up to his big ratings and the huge transfer fee he commanded in his first few years at Goodison Park.
The Hale End product has, however, been influential for the Toffees over the last year-and-a-half.
Iwobi featured in all of Everton’s 38 Premier League games throughout the 2022-2023 campaign and provided a club-high seven assists.
The versatile midfield dynamo was named the club’s Player of the Year after his contribution helped Everton escape relegation on the final day of the season.
Fulham, though, will present Iwobi with fresh challenges as the club aims to finish in the top half of the Premier League table.
At Fulham, Iwobi will reunite with manager Marco Silva, the coach who engineered his transfer from Arsenal to Everton four years ago.
