Father: Iwobi happy at Arsenal
Arsenal forward Alex Iwobi “is at the right place” and is not looking to leave the Emirates Stadium, according to his father, Chuka Iwobi.
It is understood that Barcelona are interested in the 20-year-old, who came through the youth system at Arsenal, making 35 appearances in all competitions for the Gunners since last year.
Chuka Iwobi, however, has insisted that his son is content with life at Arsenal, denying that the Nigerian international would be swayed by the offer of more money.
“At this point in time, he is at the right place. He’s doing well at Arsenal, but should any club come for him now, the answer would certainly be no,” Iwobi said.
“For him now, it’s not about the money. So, should a club like Barcelona come with more money, he will certainly stay back at Arsenal because now it is not about him making money, it’s about him concentrating on his career, progressing and going on to the next stage.”
Iwobi is yet to score in 14 Arsenal appearances this season.
