Arsenal Legend Wright Wants Iwobi To Join Aubameyang In Gunners’ Attack

Arsenal legend, Ian Wright, has suggested that Nigeria forward Alex Iwobi be one of the players who should line up alongside Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in attack if he eventually joins the London club.

Aubameyang is reported to be on the verge of joining Arsenal from Borussia Dortmund in a transfer fee believed to be in the neighbourhood of £60 million.

The Gabonese’s arrival would see the exit of Olivier Giroud who is wanted by Chelsea.

Apart from Iwobi, Wright says qMesut Ozil and Henrikh Mkhitaryan should also join Aubameyang in the attacking setup for Arsenal.

Wright told the BBC: “I’m going to have Aubameyang, [Mesut] Ozil, probably at the moment [Alex] Iwobi, and [Henrikh] Mkhitaryan.”

Wright would go on to slam Arsenal for their decision to allow Giroud leave.

“Why would they sell him? It doesn’t make sense. It really would be like lose a tenner, find a fiver,” he queried

“So we’ve got [Alexandre] Lacazette and fingers crossed Aubameyang and no big guy on the bench.

“You are talking about bringing on Danny Welbeck, or if Lacazette’s not playing then him.

“We haven’t got that guy that’s proven off the bench to come on and score goals.”

  • Alex Iwobi wud probably be left out if ‘Auba’ arrives,cos Henrikh and Mesut will occupy the wings while ‘Auba’ and Lacazette will play as centre fowards in a 4-4-2 formation
