The scenario seems to get better and better for Arsenal. If the reports are to be believed, the Gunners are set to hand their sensational youngster Alex Iwobi a new long-term contract after an impressive set of performances for the North London outfit. A bumper deal is on the cards as the club is clearly reluctant to lose him, at least in the foreseeable future and honestly speaking, the 20-year-old deserves to be handed a hefty upgrade over his existing £25,000-a-week wage.

Wenger’s Revolution in a Nutshell

Football fraternity isn’t unfamiliar with Arsène Wenger’s world class tutelage, his ability to scout for young talents and to assist them in blossoming into superstars. The repeated call from the fans for luring renowned names, however, had denied this prospect to a severe extent. Just when the process of refinement by Monsieur Wenger seemed to be on the verge of in existence, Alex Iwobi became a revelation from Arsenal’s youth academy.

The Lagos-born attacker is now a household name and resembles what Wenger preaches: a sheer attacking mentality with the knack of employing the teammates into the game alongside him and impose himself as a constant threat upfront. Though he is still an unfinished product, he is a rare breed of youngsters to break into Arsenal’s jam-packed midfield and has cemented his place in Wenger’s plans. In short, Iwobi is Wenger’s thought process in a nutshell.

Undeniably high Level of Potential

Iwobi has whopping potential; importantly, he has implemented his talents on the pitch and his impact can be revealed from the fact that last season, he kept Theo Walcott and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain out of the starting lineup. Be it in the final third or the call of duty in tracking back, the Nigerian international does not refrain from getting into the game with no hint of shyness whatsoever.

Many a time, he has bailed Arsenal from tight situations and has the right attitude to reach the pinnacle. The Gunners look to be very much in the title race and undoubtedly, Iwobi will play a major role in defining Arsenal’s output at the end of this season.

Stats Back Him

Whilst Arsenal’s mission is to keep their key players bound to the Emirates Stadium, Iwobi is no exception and he has the stats to urge the board to hand him a boosted contract. From 5 league appearances so far this season, the young gun has registered 3 assists, created as many as 7 chances and a pass accuracy of 86%. He has made a pretty alluring start to his career at the top level, but needs to make it big from here on.

Dynamic Arsenal

He has made the left wing position his own, which has allowed Alexis Sánchez and Theo Walcott to accommodate up front and on the other wing, respectively. With the attacking winger, the red half of North London look more of a lethal side in the final third with an abundance of quality on the bench as well. Moreover, his rise to the top has encouraged competitiveness at the club which is why there lingers no doubt at all on the deservingness of the sensational starlet to bag an improved contract very soon.
