Unai Emery has so far won over a lot of Arsenal fans. He’s had some tough calls to make in his short time as the Arsenal gaffer, including the decision to let Jack Wilshere go. Now though, the fans could make this decision even easier for him as they’ve been calling for the Spaniard to sell Alex Iwobi.
Iwobi came through the Gunners academy system and has been an established member of the senior squad for a few years now. However, his inconsistency and lack of end product have made a lot of fans doubt is abilities. He’s also an extremely inconsistent performer and has stagnated somewhat in the last couple of years under Arsene Wenger, having initially been so dynamic when he made the first team.
This season will be a big one for a lot of Arsenal’s fringe players. Some will be trying to work out whether they have a future at the club and others will be trying to break into the starting eleven and stay there. Iwobi will be somewhere in between and whilst a lot of fans have been calling for him to be sold, it remains to be seen where he’ll be playing his football come to the end of the transfer window.

Sell iwobi to give ESR playing to time thins season.

Why do Arsenal sell on actual talent like Gnabry and Jeff and keep people like Iwobi honestly baffles me

We give players huge contract in which we can't sell for €30m….i always say, Iwobi is not the caliber of player arsenal need… Fran Merida would have been a huge success to the club we treated him poorly likewise Jeff… At times I see Ivan methods at Arsenal as failure

As you can see, the fans are keen to sell Iwobi and will be hoping to get him out in the next two weeks before the window closes.
