Alex Iwobi has impressed in recent weeks as Arsenal continue to battle it out with Manchester United and Chelsea for that last Champions League qualification spot.
As a result, the 22-year-old has since come in for praise from both his team-mates and manager Unai Emery.
“When I ask Nacho Monreal and Send Kolasinac who is the player who you feel better on the pitch when he is playing, they say to us: Iwobi,” Emery was quoted as saying by the Independent when speaking about how much he values Iwobi.
“It is because Iwobi can open space on the overlap for them. So I think Iwobi is giving a lot for us,” the Arsenal boss later added.
In this moment of time, Iwobi is certainly playing well. However, when it comes to the final third, most are left with the feeling that the Nigeria international can do more.
Take a look at what Arsenal supporters are saying about the left winger below…
He does great beating men then his final ball is atrocious!

All he’s giving is a lot of headaches

Iwobi is good but not great, We need a world class Winger like Sterling or Sane.

Yoooo Emery it’s because they know he makes them look better by being on the pitch

That’s all good and dandy but he needs to improve his abysmal end product

No offense to Iwobi, but if you asked the same players if they rather have Sterling or Sane I think I know who they'd choose.
