Arsenal and Chile star forward Alexis Sanchez has described Super Eagles youngster Alex Iwobi as a player he rates highly.
Iwobi broke into the Arsenal first team squad in the 2015/2016 season and has gone on to become an important player for the Gunners.
The 21-year-old made 26 English Premier League appearances, scoring three goals in the just concluded season.
He is currently with the Super Eagles squad who will entertain South Africa in the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier on Saturday in Uyo.
"I really like Alex," Alexis, who won Arsenal Player of the Season for 2017, told Arsenal.com
"He's a player that can play up front, in the centre, he's good at one on ones.
"If he has a winning mentality and keeps pushing forward. I think he can do very well. I really like him."Unblock the FIFA World Cup with ExpressVPN the #1 Trusted Name in VPN
