Everton have confirmed Alex Iwobi is back in training, ahead of Sunday’s Premier League clash against West Ham United.
The Super Eagles star suffered a knock that saw him miss their 1-1 draw against Manchester United.
Iwobi was also unavailable for Nigeria’s 2022 Fifa World Cup double-header qualifier against the Central African Republic.
Addressing the club website, manager Benitez confirmed Iwobi alongside Lucas Digne and Seamus Coleman are back to full fitness – claiming it is too soon to make a decision over their availability against David Moyes’ side.
“The international break is an opportunity to bring back players,” Benitez told Everton website.
“Alex Iwobi was training and [so were] Digne and Coleman – that is good news for us – they have started training with the team.
“The others are improving, and we will see in the week how they are.
“Lucas had an issue and for two or three days was under treatment, but he has started training.”
