Alex Iwobi Career

On 27 October 2015, Iwobi made his first-team debut for the club, starting in a 3–0 defeat to Sheffield Wednesday in the Round of 16 of the League Cup. He made his Premier League debut four days later in a 3–0 win against Swansea City at the Liberty Stadium, as a stoppage time substitute for Mesut Özil. Iwobi made his Champions League debut as an 85th-minute substitute in a 5–1 defeat against Bayern Munich. Iwobi started in the first team for the 2015–16 FA Cup 3rd and 4th round home wins

against Sunderland and Burnley respectively.
After getting a first Champions League start in a 3–1 away defeat to Barcelona, Iwobi went on to score two goals in his first two Premier League starts in wins against Everton, and Watford, respectively.

In the following season Iwobi changed his squad number from 45 to 17. This was due to Chilean forward Alexis Sánchez taking up the newly vacated number 7 from the departing Tomáš Rosický. Iwobi went on to feature throughout Arsenal’s victorious FA Cup campaign of 2016–17. As so he earned a winners medal as being part of the squad that beat Chelsea by 2 goals to 1 in the final of such. He achieved further success with Arsenal in the 2017 Community Shield, in which Arsenal beat Chelsea on penalties.

In January 2018 a video allegedly showing Iwobi at a late-night party the day before a match was released.

Alex Iwobi Wife

From my research, Alex Iwobi is not married to anyone at the moment. But, before the ladies start having fantasies of snagging Iwobi, reports suggest he is dating 23-year old model Erin Budina.

Before dating Erin, Iwobi was in a relationship with another model Clarisse Juliet. However, things ended years ago after Clarisse accused him of infidelity and broke up with him.Having evaluated Iwobi’s relationships, two things are obvious:

a) He has a thing for beautiful girls — hot models, to be specific
b) He has no intention of settling down soon with his career still taking a central role in his life.
Still, I can’t help but imagine how it would look like if Iwobi ditched his foreign girls and settled for a girl of Nigerian descent. Maybe that would finally make him a proper Naija boy!


Alex Iwobi signed a 5 year / £13,000,000 contract with the Everton F.C., including an annual average salary of £2,600,000. In 2022, Iwobi will earn a base salary of £6,240,000, while carrying a cap hit of £6,240,000.
