Former England forward Darren Bent says Alex Iwobi lacks the quality to thrive at his new Premier League club, Everton, reports Completesports.com.
Iwobi was a mainstay under Unai Emery in his final season at the Emirates Stadium, playing 51 times across all competitions, scored six goals and provided nine assists.
The 23-year-old completed a £40m move to Everton on summer transfer deadline day.
Bent, who watched Iwobi regularly as part of the Gunners’ fanbase, says that he was not overly impressed with the winger during his time in north London and that Everton already have a better player in the shape of Richarlison.
“I’m an Arsenal fan and I’ve never been Iwobi’s biggest fan,” Bent told Football Insider.
“My thing with people has always been quality on the ball. Whether it was his final cross or his shot on goal, it was always under-hit or there was never really any quality there.
“He’d do the hard stuff, go past someone, and you’d want him to make the right decision, but he never seemed to get it right. I wouldn’t say he’s better than Richarlison because he [Richarlison] gives you goals, he’s got a bit more quality.”
