Arsenal fans tell coach to sell Iwobi

Arsenal fans

Arsenal fans wants Iwobi out of the team despite his immense contribution to Arsenal this season, the fans of Arsenal Football Club believe the Nigerian is not good enough to be in the club next season, while they are also demanding his exit from Emirates.

According to report, the fans said that despite several chances given to Iwobi, he is yet to prove himself. Some of the fans are calling for him to be used in central areas, but the majority have seen enough and want him out.

Alex Iwobi has been used as a winger for most of his days at Arsenal, and his lack of goals and assists from wide areas has seen him come in for plenty of abuse. In response to that, the tweet above from popular Arsenal fan account Ltarsenal has opened the argument to give Iwobi a go in midfield as either a #8 or a #10, a position he plays in for with his national team – Super Eagles.

Despite this, the Gunners are still not having any of it. They have no interest in seeing Iwobi used anywhere, and with the Premier League season now over they want to see action taken in the summer transfer window. A new winger or two will be crucial, and if it means letting Iwobi go then very few fans will have any issues with it, as they look for a complete Unai Emery revolution.

Here are some of the fans tweet:

According to LTArsenal in his twitter handle @ltarsenal

“Iwobi needs to be given a chance as an #8 or #10 in the near future. As he said, that’s his best position. I think we can appreciate him more should he play there. Might never be the killer final third winger some are hoping he becomes. His future lies in central areas.

Yusuf SB on @bin_sulym said: “No pls. He need to be replaced with someone far much better.

Ahmed Mahmood on @AhmedMahmood6 wrote, “Or maybe he is just not good enough and we need someone better…

Josh Robinson on @JoshRobbo11 said: “He should be sold or have a season long loan next season. Had so many opportunities this season and failed.”

Salifu Adam @fundraiser360 simply wrote, “Sell him”

Gunner Nation @MatteoNr, “He just need to be sold.”

AFCTOM @goonertom18, “He’s a headless chicken, should be sold in the summer.”

Josh Moss @MossMan800, “Not sure, sadly I just don’t think he’s good enough.”
