Diaspora, Africa – (African Boulevard News) – In a recent Premier League match that ended in a 2-2 draw between Leicester City and Everton, Brazilian star Richarlison was on form. As essential as ever for The Toffees, the attacker continued his fine run of form this season, notching a goal and an assist, and subsequently caught the eye of Tottenham star player Harry Kane.
However, it was Richarlison’s teammate Alex Iwobi who was the recipient of Kane’s endorsement, with the Spurs striker taking to social media to praise the Nigerian’s performance in the match. Tottenham fans were quick to notice the tweets, and many saw it as a sign that the club was keeping an eye on the Nigerian.
Iwobi, who joined Everton in 2019, has been a consistent performer for The Toffees ever since his arrival.

He created several chances for his fellow attackers and was always willing to take players on and make things happen.
Richarlison, who scored Everton’s first goal in the match, was equally effusive in his praise of Iwobi. Speaking to reporters after the game, the Brazilian heaped praise on his teammate, describing him as a “fantastic player”.
“Iwobi is a fantastic player. He is a great guy, a great professional, and he always gives his best on the pitch,” Richarlison said. “He is very important to our team, and we are lucky to have him in our squad.”
Iwobi’s performance against Leicester City has certainly caught the attention of many Premier League fans, and it remains to be seen whether Tottenham will make a move for the Nigerian in the upcoming transfer window. However, one thing is for sure, Iwobi has the support of his teammates and the respect of his peers in the league.
In conclusion, Alex Iwobi’s form this season has been exceptional, and his performance against Leicester City was no exception. With Tottenham expressing interest in the Nigerian, it will be fascinating to see how things pan out in the coming months. One thing is for sure, however, Iwobi is a player on the rise and is sure to have a bright future ahead of him.
