Everton midfielder, Alex Iwobi met a young Everton fan who tweaked his name to 'Iwobidinho' on Tuesday, August, 16.

The 26-year-old revealed this via a tweet on his official Twitter handle when he shared a picture of the young boy in his number 17 yellow away strip with 'Iwobidinho' inscribed behind the shirt.

“Met This Lil Legend Today, Appreciate The Love Lil Man” the ex-Arsenal man tweeted.

Iwobi has picked up from where he left off last season.

The Nigerian international was impressive towards the tail end of last season.

He helped Frank Lampard's side to avoid relegation with some fine individual displays in the midfield area.

Iwobi has continued in a similar fashion playing the holding midfield role for the Toffees in the current campaign.

The Super Eagles midfielder was impressive in Everton's first two Premier League outings, despite his side losing to Chelsea and Aston Villa.
