I'd sell him for £5million. Also in £1million instalments paid over 5 years. Genuinely one of the worst attacking players to have been given an opportunity to play. Awful awful footballer. No quality in the final third and panics with decision making.

Ornyyy 40m for Iwobi so we can get Upamecano? Wow I am really happy with Arsenal football club now

I like Iwobi. It’s easy to argue that we have young players in the wings ready to try and take his place, as in pre-season, but I’d be sad to see him go.
If it helped us go big on a top centre-back, that would be the only reason I’d consider it. https://t.co/wUP17UQ4eP

Yes cash in as we have enough attacking threat. Put it towards defence. It would be the right move for him as well
