Alex Iwobi was completely left out of Everton’s clash against Spurs and has been urged to leave the Goodison Park.
In the summer of 2019, the 24-year-old moved to Everton to end his 16-year stay with Arsenal, a club which he joined when he was in primary school.
The Toffees paid £ 28 million for Nigerian international, but since his arrival, the versatile player has failed to make a major impression with the club due to form loss and injury issues.
Iwobi did not make his side’s bench in their stunning 1-0 victory over Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday.
Udeze feels it is time the Super Eagles star left the Goodison Park outfit despite still left with a four-year contract with the club.
“I think Iwobi should look for another club especially with James Rodriguez signed it will be difficult for him to play,” Udeze said on Brila FM.
“Imagine against Tottenham he did not make the bench and even the squad. So for me, he should start looking for another club.
“It’s painful for me but as it is, I think the best thing is for him to go elsewhere.”
Iwobi has featured for England U16, U17 and U18 before making switching his allegiance to the Nigeria national team in October 2015, making his Super Eagles debut against the Democratic Republic of the Congo.
The forward has since made 40 appearances for the West Africans and played a key role as Nigeria clinched a place in the 2018 World Cup in Russia.
He was also a key component of Gernot Rohr’s team that finished third at the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt.
