Arsenal announced a departure well after the deadline after Everton managed to clinch winger Alex Iwobi in a £34m deal which has left many fans in North London debating the move.

Iwobi was confirmed as an Everton player some four hours after the deadline and leaves the Emirates Stadium having played 149 matches where he also scored 15 goals and provided 27 assists.

A number of fans took to Twitter to share their thoughts on the sale of Iwobi.

One supporter said he reminded him of Jack Wilshere in the sense that neither of them pushed on from their early potential in an Arsenal shirt, also adding that he would probably enjoy a spell at Everton.

Another fan added that Arsenal have got ridiculous money for him and labelled manager Unai Emery as ‘ruthless’ and ‘ambitious’ when arguing why Iwobi was sold.

Others were against the sale claiming the Nigerian wasn’t ever given a chance in his best position, comparing him to Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain whilst a further supporter thought the winger looked good last season.

Here’s the best of the reaction:
