Former England player, Darren Bent has attacked Super Eagles forward, Alex Iwobi, saying that player lacks quality.
Brent questioned the quality of the Nigerian playmaker following his move from Arsenal to Everton this summer.
Iwobi had moved to Arsenal on a five-year deal for an initial fee of £28 million, rising to £34 million.
Bent, who played for Aston Villa and a self-professed Arsenal fan, said that Everton already had a better player than the Nigerian in Richarlison.
“I’m an Arsenal fan and I’ve never been Iwobi’s biggest fan,” Bent told Football Insider.
“My thing with people has always been quality on the ball. Whether it was his final cross or his shot on goal, it was always under-hit or there was never really any quality there.
“He’d do the hard stuff, go past someone, and you’d want him to make the right decision, but he never seemed to get it right.
“I wouldn’t say he’s better than Richarlison because he gives you goals, he’s got a bit more quality.”
