ALEX IWOBI looks set to sign a new £100,000-a-week deal with Everton.

The Nigerian midfielder, 26, is now a key player under Frank Lampard and ready to pen a fresh three-and-a-half-year agreement.

Everton star Alex Iwobi is poised to seal a big increase in wages

Iwobi has just 18 months of his current £70,000-a-week contract left and the new one will take him to 2026.

A £38million signing from Arsenal in 2019, Iwobi was proving to be a flop at Goodison Park but he has completely turned around his fortunes.

Despite only scoring once this season, he has delivered a string of top performances and is one of the first names on Lampard’s team sheet.

A new deal for Iwobi is a lift for the Toffees, who have been hit by injuries.

Midfielder James Garner was ruled out for two months with a back problem.

The 21-year-old stayed behind when the club travelled to Australia for the Sydney Super Cup and Lampard said: “He’s probably going to be back at the back end of January or early February.

“It’s a disappointing injury.”

Fellow midfielder Tom Davies flew back early from Australia after suffering a knee problem in training.
