EPL: Iwobi would fit into Arsenal team under Arteta – Ian Wright

Alex Iwobi EVERTON

Former Arsenal striker, Ian Wright, has said Everton’s Alex Iwobi could easily fit into Mikel Arteta’s side.

The Gunners sold the Nigerian star to the Toffees in 2019 after being deemed surplus to requirements at the Emirates.

However, Iwobi has become a key player for the Frank Lampard-led Toffees.

Wright could not hide his delight regarding the 26-year-old’s development at Goodison Park.

“I am so pleased with the way it is going for him,” Wright told Wrighty’s House Podcast as quoted by Football365.

“I remember Arsenal fans, it’s the same thing they did with [Alex] Oxlade-Chamberlain, they ridiculed him. I remember watching him play in midfield early days for Arsenal at West Ham, and you’re seeing something.

“His ball progression and work rate, what Frank [Lampard] has now recognised him and put him there, listen to the Everton fans when he’s doing his work, they are adoring him now. I’m loving the way it’s working out for Iwobi.”
