Since joining the Toffees, Iwobi has scored two goals and made one assist in 26 appearances in all competitions for Everton this season.

Players with the highest number of votes from fans will be awarded the prestigious club award.

The winners will be revealed in a specially-created virtual awards ceremony at the end of the season.
