EPL: Why I Joined Fulham – Alex Iwobi

Super Eagles star, Alex Iwobi has revealed the reason behind his move to Premier League club Fulham.

Iwobi linked up with the London club from Everton on transfer deadline day.

Fulham paid £22m including add-ons to get the deal done.


The Nigeria international will get the chance to work with Marco Silva again after their time together at Everton.

Iwobi claimed Silva played a key role in his move to the Craven Cottage.

“Marco Silva spoke to me and told me about the ambitions of the club,[Fulham], and where he wants to go,” Iwobi told the club’s official website.

“I’m on board, and I’m hoping I can bring something to Fulham. He wants me to challenge things and I feel like he gave me the confidence boost. I hope I’m able to repay the faith.”

Iwobi is currently sidelined with a hamstring injury and is expected to make his debut for Fulham after the international break.
