Ian Wright hails Alex Iwobi’s form

Super Eagles and Arsenal forward Alex Iwobi has been hailed by the North London legend Ian Wright saying the youngster is a fantastic player and the  Gunners now appear to be grooming him to replace Mesut Ozil, who may quit The Emirates when his contract runs out.

Manager Arsene Wenger said before the game that Iwobi will play in place of ill Ozil after recent subdued performances.

Ozil has less than two years left on his Arsenal contract and must now be tempted by a more financially rewarding deal to stay put.

The 20-year-old Iwobi scored his second Premier League goal Sunday as Arsenal stayed within striking distance of leaders Chelsea and Liverpool.

Wright said, “He’s a young, fantastic player and Arsenal think very highly about him that it seems they are preparing him to replace Ozil.”

Wright also said the youngster was rested last month and this has helped him.

“He was rested last month and he needed it,” he said.
