Alex Iwobi ready to fight for place in Arsenal

Alex Iwobi has revealed that he would like Arsenal to sign World-class Wilfried Zaha.

The Gunners have been linked with a move for the Crystal Palace talisman for much of the summer transfer window, but no move has yet come to fruition.

Zaha is reportedly keen on a move to the Emirates, while Gunners head coach Unai Emery is a keen admirer of the Ivory Coast frotman.

However, both clubs are well apart in their valuations of the 26-year-old, with Arsenal offering around Pound 40million, while the Eagles hierarchy value him at more like Pound 80million.

Iwobi was quoted as saying that signing Zaha would add more stress to his position at the Emirates.

The winger said, 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.
