According to the reports on Punch and Complete Sports, this will be the first time Iwobi will win the award following his arrival from Arsenal in 2019.

Sports Brief spoke with a Nigerian reporter Babatunde Ojora who expressed happiness about the performances of Alex Iwobi for Everton in the 2022/23 League term.

Ojora praises Alex Iwobi

''I am happy that Iwobi and his teammates were able to escape relegation on the last day of the season which means we will see him next term in the Premier League.

''He was incredible in the second round of the season and I want to salute him for the fighting spirit that helped his side. Kudos must also be given to his coaches and teammates.''

Iwobi wants good pitches

Earlier, Sports Brief had reported how former Arsenal star, Alex Iwobi believes it will be very difficult for the Super Eagles to be beaten at home if Nigeria had better pitches for players to showcase their skills on.

The reaction from the Everton attacking midfielder came days after the Nigerian national team was beaten in Abuja by Guinea-Bissau in the African Cup of Nations qualifiers.

In that game, the likes of Iwobi, Victor Osimhen, and Ademola Lookman all failed to rescue the Super Eagles from suffering an embarrassing home loss.

However, the three-time African champions bounced back with a 1-0 win in the return leg against Guinea-Bissau, with Moses Simon's penalty giving Nigeria the win.
