Alex Iwobi the black Knight in Shining Armour for Arsenal this season. Well, this Kid has really proven his worth and has kept his playing number in the Arsenal squad this season. We all know that maintaining your position this competitive season is quite a huge task. This being evident from the likes of Olivier Giroud, Danny Welbeck and Jack Wilshere. Under his skills of Mastery and football, Arsenal has been able to make quite some progress in the premier League.
The Nigerian International has proven to be quite a force to reckon with in the field especially from opposing teams. As a matter of fact, ask Chelsea they know too well on this issue during their 3-0 hammering from the gunners early in October.
This talent from the Nigerian international in the pitch has not gone unnoticed. It has raised eyebrows especially in the right directions, and when i say right directions i really mean it.
Barcelona football club, one of the greatest clubs, have taken a sudden liking on the young energetic Nigerian International. Well, it has not yet been official if the youngster has agreed or has turned down the offer yet. But what is quite clear is that Barcelona have showed an interest in the Nigerian International.
Well, his father on the other hand claims that his son has turned down the offer in joining Barcelona stating that his son’s future is dedicated to Arsenal. But who knows, things might really turn around in the next transfer season taking place in January that might leave people surprised.
Arsene Wenger on the other side has tipped that his star Nigerian International play-maker Iwobi, may make a switch to a more central position in the future. This position which is currently being occupied by Arsenal’s heavy weights this season: Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanches. This goes further in depicting that the kid is good for him to be handed a big position such as the central position in the squad.
The Nigerian International broke into the first team earlier in 2016. And after his first appearance, he was on everyone’s lips “Alex Iwobi”. I do not know why, maybe its because of his personal humility that sets him apart from other Arsenal players, a personality also associated to Manchester United’s Anthony Martial. On top of it all, the Nigerian International has enjoyed a superb run of form from the gunners since being promoted to the first team. So his focus should be nowhere else but in Arsenal.
Will Arsenal really maintain Iwobi and prevent his Barcelona transfer next season? Will Iwobi ever outgrow Arsenal? This are some of the questions which should be in every gooner’s mind.
