​Wenger: This is what I want from Arsenal youngster Iwobi

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has asked youngster Alex Iwobi to add end-product to his game.

The 21-year-old has looked impressive as he has been deputising for injured Mesut Ozil in the recent games for the Gunners. The Nigeria international scored his debut goal for the Gunners in the 2-0 win over Brighton on Sunday.

"I think he's a kind of player who has a good availability," said the French manager his post-match press conference. "He helps you a lot to get out of pressure when you are in a build up game and creates spaces.

"What you want from him is final balls and goals as well. A player like him must score 10 goals and he must as well give between six and 10 assists and that's what I want from him."
