Everton boss, Marco Silva, wants Alex Iwobi to score more goals and improve on his defensive side despite his impressive start at Merseyside.

The Nigerian winger has scored twice in three games in all competitions for the Merseysiders since his arrival from Arsenal this summer.

Iwobi scored his first goal for Everton against Lincoln City in a Carabao Cup clash before following up with another strike against Wolverhampton Wanderers in the Premier League just before the international break.

The 23-year-old struggled to find the back of the net during his time with the Gunners, scoring just 15 times across all competitions.

But Silva believes there's still room for improvement in the technically gifted player's game.

”He’s working really well, he has the quality. Many things to keep improving because he can really help our team. He has to score more goals. The other things is to keep improving is his defensive processes. He has the quality,” Silva told a news conference on Friday.

“We try to sign the right players, to come here and help us. One or two of them didn’t need time to adapt, they just changed the shirt. They adapt so fast, him and Fabian."

Everton's next game is a Premier League clash with Bournemouth on Sunday.
