Nigeria winger Alex Iwobi will return to training with Everton next week after spending the last few weeks on the sidelines due to a hamstring injury, reports Completesports.com.
Iwobi suffered a hamstring injury while in action for the Toffees against his former club Arsenal in December.
He was replaced by Cenk Tosun in the 11th minute of the goalless draw against the Gunners after picking up the injury.
Everton manager Carlo Ancelotti provided updates on the Nigerian winger’s recovery process during his Thursday’s press conference ahead of this weekend’s Premier League clash against West Ham United.
“Alex Iwobi will not be ready for the match. I think next week he will be able to train with us,”Ancelotti told evertontv.
Iwobi linked up with Everton up from boyhood club Arsenal last summer.
The 23-year-old has scored one goal in 16 league appearances for the Toffees.
