Orny saying hes agreed to join Everton for 35-40m.
Very strange.

This has gone through for apparently £40 million. I don't know exactly who was pulling the strings on this one but he deserves a statue. Wenger would've rejected that bid. No doubt. We have pulled their pants down.

I'll f.ucking drive him if this is true!

Good fee but i wanted him to stay! I guess all the money we'd been spending had to be recouped somehow.

He'd do well at Everton. All the best to the BIG 17!

Wow didn't expect this last minute.

I liked Iwobi personally but that's a great fee for an attacker without end product

Yes I think he's a much better player than people generally reckon - he might just blossom at Everton but he was always going to be down the pecking order at Arsenal - don't blame him for moving

I think that Iwobi would still be a useful squad player for us - although still without a clearly-defined position and now facing even more competition for playing time this season. He would have started much fewer games for us this season.

To get 40M for him is mind-blowing.
I know that he is homegrown and all, but still ...

You would think that Everton would have been a little more circumspect about draining off Arsenal's talent after their recent experience with Poodlebrain!

BWAHAHAHAHA!!!

Best of luck to Alex - he always gave us an honest effort.

Then the rumor is true when he alleged threatened to leave if we signed Saha.
But we signed Pepe … win-win for all parties if it is true as he got to play regular football like Walcott over there.

Great money for a bit part player, but disappointing to lose him at 23 when we're still saddled with the likes of Mkhitaryan on crazy wages for little or no end product.
Very similar to the situation with the Ox a few years back.

It will take a bit longer to flush out the odiferous residue from wenger's tenure here ... but I do like where we are headed now.

I honest think we may regret this move. He seems to have all the tools to be a top player except final pass and shooting technique.

Someone like Pep would improve him into making great decisions in final 3rd. But again 40m is good money.

Excellent news! Iwobi and his old pal Walcott will now be misfiring on all cylinders for another team.

Everton really are a desperate bunch, they even tried to get Rojo!
