Arsene Wenger Wants Goals From Iwobi
Alex Iwobi is pulling his weight at Arsenal but much more is still expected from the Nigeria international especially from Manager Arsene Wenger.
The 21-year-old has just six goals and 12 assists to his name across 64 appearances for Arsenal and Wenger has urged Iwobi to add to his output if he is to develop into a “top-class player”.
“I like the fact that he can play in tight areas, that he turns the game forwards, that he’s very mobile,” Wenger said.
“We forget sometimes that Alex is still a very young player and that there’s a lot more to come from him. There must be a lot more to come from him because he has more personality in the game now.
"We expect him to be more efficient in the final third offensively, because you feel there are goals in there and assists too. They have to come out. Add that to the fact that he allows the team to play very well and he will be a top-class player.”
Iwobi has not scored this season but provided an assist in the 3-1 Europa League win against Cologne last week.
The Super Eagles star will have his chance to improve his output next week as Arsenal face three games in the space of six days.
