The Hale End Academy graduate is the fifth most expensive Nigerian player, behind Victor Osimhen, Victor Boniface, Ademola Lookman and Taiwo Awoniyi, and ranked number 149 among Premier League players.
Iwobi is in the running for Fulham’s Goal of the Season award and faces competition from Andreas Pereira, João Palhinha, Raúl Jiménez, Harry Wilson (3), Bobby Decordova-Reid (2) and Rodrigo Muniz.
The Super Eagles playmaker was nominated for his injury time winner in a 2-1 victory over Manchester United at Old Trafford on February 24.
