Everton manager Carlo Ancelotti has hinted that recuperating winger Alex Iwobi is set to return from injury that has kept him out of actions for weeks.
The Nigeria international was substituted in the 11th minute of Everton’s goalless draw against Arsenal at the Goodison park after picking up a hamstring injury and has not featured since then.
Speaking ahead of this weekend’s Premier League clash against West Ham United in Thursday’s press conference, Ancelotti disclosed that the Eagles forward is closer to a return.

“Alex Iwobi will not be ready for the match. I think next week he will be able to train with us,” Ancelotti told Everton TV [as quoted on royal blue mersey].
