Alex Iwobi has dismissed reports linking him with an Arsenal exit by claiming he wants the Gunners to sign ‘world-class’ players.
Arsenal have been heavily linked with Wilfried Zaha this summer but they are yet to meet Crystal Palace‘s valuation.
Iwobi admitted the arrival of the Ivorian talisman would ‘add more stress’ to his chances of playing regularly but he won’t be sitting on the bench indefinitely.
In contrast, the Nigeria international told Goal during the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) in Egypt, he would welcome competition from the Gunners’ transfer targets including Yannick Carrasco, if they arrive.
The recent reports placed his future at Emirates Stadium in doubt but he has come out to assure fans he would stay put in Unai Emery’s team for the next campaign.
