Arsenal attacker Alex Iwobi has come under heavy criticism from some of his own fans on Twitter this season for his performances, but the potential appointment of Mikel Arteta as Arsene Wenger’s successor could help to change that.
The Spaniard has been working as a coach with Pep Guardiola at Manchester City, and the Premier League-winning boss has previously said that the former Gunners midfielder has spent a lot of time working with wingers Raheem Sterling and Leroy Sane on the training pitch.
The Emirates Stadium faithful would certainly like to see Iwobi make the positive progress those two have from next season, in order to ensure that he makes more of an impact for the north London outfit when he is on the pitch.
We asked Arsenal fans to vote on our poll as to whether they thought the Nigeria international, who will be representing his country at the World Cup next month, would improve under Arteta’s tutelage, and a majority 63% said that he would.
The 22-year-old scored three goals and provided a further seven assists in 39 appearances in all competitions for the Gunners this season, and he will know that he needs to do much better next term if he is to stay in and around the starting XI.
