So it is definitely time for Arsenal to trim their over-bloated squad after seeing five arrivals already this summer, but could Alex Iwobi be one of the players that Unai Emery is happy to see leave if the opportunity arose. Well, according to AllNigeriaSoccer.com, Lazio are keen on taking the 22 year-old to Italy. They reported….
Italian Serie A club, Lazio are understandably working around the clock to try to price away Super Eagles youngster, Alex Iwobi from Arsenal.
According to Italian news outlet, ilmessaggero.it Lazio have lined up a move for the 22-year old alongside his Gunners teammate, Lucas Perez while also considering options in Sevilla’s Joaquin Correa and Atletico Madrid’s Angel Correa.
The report has suggested that Lazio will want to recruit the Nigerian in view of using him as a direct replacement for Felipe Anderson who left Stadio Olimpico this summer to join Premier League club, West Ham for a club record transfer fee of £36 million.
So what do you think? Should Arsenal listen to offers around €25 million for Iwobi, or should we keep him and hope he improves in the future?
