Arsenal youngster Alex Iwobi looks set to leave the club on loan in a bid to secure regular playing opportunities, according to his father.
In a frank interview with Goal, Chuka Iwobi revealed his 19-year-old son had attracted interest from a number of clubs across England and would be keen on a loan switch to gain valuable first-team experience away from the Emirates.
He said: “A few clubs in the United Kingdom and abroad have approached Arsenal to take Alex on loan but Arsene Wenger wants him to be with the first team because he did very well in pre-season.
“Alex’s preferred option at this stage is to go on loan to gain first team experience and come back to Arsenal later on to fight for a place.
“Hopefully a loan move will be sorted out by the time Alex comes back from international duty. As regards the likely club Alex will play for on loan, at the moment discussions are ongoing.”
