Mills told Football Insider that Iwobi had gone “stale” at Arsenal prior to his move to Goodison Park.

The Ex-Manchester City star said that the 23-year-old had gone off the boil a little bit in north London and that his move to Merseyside has brought the Nigerian international renewed vigour for the game.

Iwobi swapped the Emirates Stadium for Goodison Park after 149 games for the Gunners, with three appearances for the Toffees so far.

Having seen the 36-cap international score twice in his first two starts for Marco Silva’s men, Mills says that the winger is looking reinvigorated in his performances.

“I think sometimes you can go a little bit stale at clubs, especially when you’ve been there as a kid, you’re maybe not as appreciated as you deserve. He’s been given a fresh chance and a new challenge and it seems that excitement and endeavour is back,” said Mills

He added: “He’s already got himself on the scoresheet, which was questioned of him, which is fabulous. It looks like he has that renewed energy and sometimes it’s very, very simple. He probably just feels a little bit loved, a little appreciated.”
