One of the latest transfer deadline day deals to go through was the transfer to take Alex Iwobi from Arsenal to Everton for £34 million (BBC Sport).
The Gunners chose to offload their academy graduate, ending his long association with the football club.
During 149 games with the first-team, Iwobi scored 15 goals and registered 23 assists.
Marco Silva had been heavily linked with a move for Wilfried Zaha but when Crystal Palace chose not to sell, he turned his attentions to Iwobi.
The 23-year-old has 36 caps for his country and featured for Nigeria in the 2018 World Cup in Russia.
His departure from the Emirates will perhaps come as a surprise to some. Last season he featured in 51 games for the Gunners and seemed to be fancied by Unai Emery.
With the signing of Nicolas Pepe, however, his first-team chances next season looked remote. A switch to Everton does seem to enhance his chances of regular football.
There has been a sense of mixed reactions from the Arsenal faithful over this departure.
Some are gutted that prospect from the academy has departed; whilst others think it is a good move for the club to offload him.
We looked at a selection of tweets from Arsenal supporters in reaction to Iwobi’s departure:
What a terrible record for an attacker

He is not going to get game time at Arsenal this season, so it was the right decision

Useless servant for the club, good riddance. So glad all these soft Wenger-era players are going. Make Arsenal great again!
