Gibbs-White could start against Arsenal tomorrow.
He told Sky Sports: "My idol growing up was Paul Scholes, it was just the way he kept things ticking in midfield and could pick out a pass from anywhere.
"When I was growing up I used to watch him and how he played, and I sort of try and add that to my game today.
"The first memory of Wolves in the Premier League was when we beat Liverpool. We were ballboys that game and I used to remember thinking, 'I wish I was playing'.
"I loved watching Arsenal and City are another team that are beautiful to watch, it's a dream to come up against these sorts of teams."
