Arsenal winger Alex Iwobi has revealed he’d consider leaving the club if a deal for Wilfried Zaha is sanctioned.
The Gunners are keen to do a deal with Crystal Palace for the Ivorian forward, and have so far offered £40 million (BBC Sport).
That was swiftly rejected, with the Eagles valuing him closer to £80 million.
Apparently the ace wants to leave Selhurst Park, and it looks as though the saga will rumble on.
Zaha would no doubt improve Arsenal, but his signing could well come at an extra cost with Iwobi insisting he’d have to think about his future.
He said (The Sun): “I am not one to chicken out. I have had it all over the years, being told I’m not good enough.
“So whenever the chance comes I always try and prove I should be starting. But it’s going to be difficult if Zaha comes. He will add more stress.
Iwobi’s comments are interesting.
Arguably the majority of Arsenal supporters would not miss the Nigeria international.
He improved slightly under Unai Emery in 2018/19, but there are still question marks about the 23-year-old’s end product and consistency.
Emery would hope not to see him leave as he would be a good squad option, but the £50,000-a-week winger (Spotrac) cannot be blamed for wanting regular game time having largely got that last season.
