Many of these players - a large chunk of whom are based in Europe - made moves to new clubs this year with Alex Iwobi's transfer from Arsenal to Everton for £35m the biggest deal involving a Nigerian player.   A breakout year for some; year of resignation for others; transformational year for some others. This year, the Super Eagles welcomed a number of new members into its fold. The likes of Rangers' Joe Aribo, Maduka Okoye of Fo
