‘Dexterous’ Iwobi Tipped To Shine For Arsenal Next Season

‘Dexterous’ Iwobi Tipped To Shine For Arsenal Next Season

Super Eagles forward Alex Iwobi has been tipped as one of Arsenal's 10 youngsters expected to shine next season, according to a list compiled by telegraph.co.uk.

Last season, Iwobi, 21, made 26 league appearances for Arsenal, scoring three goals.

He broke into the Arsenal first team in the second half of the 2015/2016 season where he scored two league goals after 13 league appearances.

At the just concluded Emirates Cup, Iwobi scored one of Arsenal's goals in their 5-2 win against Benfica.

The nine other youngsters tipped to impress for Arsenal are Rob Holding, Joe Willock, Matt Macey, Krystian Bielek, Ainsley Maitland-Niles, Eddie Nketiah, Cohen Bramall, Reiss Nelson and Donyell Malen.

Telegraph.co.uk wrote concerning expectations on Iwobi ahead of next season: "Iwobi was a permanent fixture in Arsenal's forward line at the start of last season, but faded into the background as the campaign progressed. Arsene Wenger might regret not taking him out of the line of fire sooner.

"Nevertheless, the bright and dexterous attacking midfielder that burst onto the scene in 2016 is still in there. The two positions behind Alexandre Lacazette look ideal for well-suited to the 21-year-old, and a season deputising for Mesut Ozil might be a stepping stone for him to recapture his best form."
