Arsenal have sold Alex Iwobi to Everton in a deal worth a reported £40m, ending his 15-year spell at the club.

The 23-year-old signed for the Gunners aged just seven, going on to progress through the youth ranks before making his first-team debut in 2015.

He went on to make 148 appearances, scoring 15 goals.

Unai Emery paid tribute to the departing winger, saying: "Alex has made a big contribution here at Arsenal.

"He worked hard in the academy where he was an example to many young players and has been an important part of our squad.
