Alex Iwobi has claimed that Arsenal need what Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez brings to the team.
The Nigerian enjoyed a top week scoring the winner for his country to help them qualify for the upcoming World Cup, and now has his eye on continuing that form for Arsenal this weekend.
Our team currently has a huge cloud of doubt around it due to the number of contract sagas currently running, with Mesut Ozil, Alexis Sanchez and Jack Wilshere all available for free transfers at the end of the campaign.
The latter looks to be playing for his new deal at present, while the other two seem much more set on leaving the club, and Iwobi for one doesn’t want to see them go.
Iwobi said: “When they are fit they are unstoppable. They are both capable of changing a game or a season.
“They have a big decision to make. But it would be a huge setback to lose them because from the stats you can see we do need them for their goals and assists.
“For a team like Arsenal, we need to be aiming for the top four and we need what they bring.”
“It will be great for them to stay,” he said.
“I’ve learnt a lot from them.
“Just the opportunity to even train with them has been amazing. They are two top class players with great experience having played at the top level.”
Could we still persuade either of the two to stay? Are they replaceable?
