Shocking reports in Turkey are claiming Alex Iwobi could head to Galatasaray before the transfer window closes.
This summer, a lot of Arsenal players have been linked with a move away from the club, but the most shocking of them all, is the recent reports linking Iwobi to Turkey.
The 21 year old broke into Arsenal’s first team last season and quickly established himself as one of the club’s brightest prospects.
However, Wenger’s change to a 3-4-3 formation has seen the midfielder feature less than he did at the beginning of his career and Takvim via the Daily Star is claiming he could be set for a spell away from the Emirates.
According to the Turkish based newspaper, Galatasaray and Arsenal are in talks over a loan move for the Nigerian international.
Gala’s sporting director Cenk Ergun recently opened talks with Arsenal over Iwobi and it is claimed that discussions are progressing well.
Should there be any truth in this, it would come as a huge shock to Arsenal supporters who rate Iwobi highly.
Personally, I think this is unlikely to happen. Although he wouldn’t start if everyone is fit, he has a crucial role to play in our quest to challenge for the Premier League title. He will be a good back up option for the two attacking midfield positions and it will be a silly decision if Wenger allows him leave.
