In the late hours of Wednesday, Arsenal will face London rivals, Chelsea in the final of the the European competition in Baku with Mkhitaryan set to miss the big game due to political reasons.
Mkhitaryan pulled out of the encounter as a result of his country’s dispute with the host nation of the final, Azerbaijan.
Iwobi says the Armenian midfielder is unhappy to miss the game, but he has vowed that the Gunners will try their best in the game to clinch the trophy.
“He has contributed a lot to help us get to where we are, he is very upset, he has taken a decision, and he cannot go [for the final],” Iwobi told the Guardian.
“We’re going to fight and hopefully win the trophy, not just for us but for him.”
Winning the Europa League trophy will guarantee Arsenal – who finished the Premier League in the fifth place – a spot in the Champions League next season.
