Everton manager Marco Silva says Alex Iwobi is now in a better physical shape but admitted he still have to make a decision on whether the Nigerian is ready to make his debut for the club.
Iwobi penned a five-year contract with the Toffees on transfer deadline day ending his over his two decades stint with boyhood club, Arsenal.
The winger only started training with his new clubmates last week and only made the bench in Everton 1-0 home win Watford at the Goodison Park last Saturday.
Quizzed about Iwobi’s availability for his side’s Premier League away fixture at Everton this weekend, Silva hinted that he will make a decision on the eve of the game.
” It’s only Alex Iwobi second week of training and we have to take care. He’s getting better & if I decide, he’ll be ready to help,” Silva told a press conference on Thursday.
“We have to take care of the situation giving him enough time to get fitter.”
