Iwobi: I’m Ready To Be More Professional, Face Arsenal Challenge Without Wenger

Maitland-Niles did play at times as a left-wing back last season but is not a natural fit for the left-back berth.

Arsenal midfielder Alex Iwobi has signed a new long-term contract, the Premier League club announced on Friday.

"It's going to be a bit odd at first, because all my Arsenal life has been about Arsene Wenger", he added.

Arsenal last won the title shortly before Kanu left the club in 2004, since when they have struggled to consistently challenge.

"He covers more ground than everyone nearly every week, and he scores goals and makes goals; he's a good footballer with a good brain".

Unai Emery has backed Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Alexandre Lacazette and Eddie Nketiah to fire in the goals for Arsenal next season.

"Coming into a big club you need a trophy, so if you don't win the league you have to win the others". He also brushed aside a question about whether he expects to sign another player in the final week of the transfer window, but admitted the club is likely to trim the squad.

But shouldn't some presidential meetings remain private? Trump has since tried to walk back at least some of his comments. It led to him reading out a clarification in which he said he had misspoken, mixing up the word "would" with "wouldn't" .

"I never said it (Aubameyang's arrival) was bad for me, only people in the press said it was bad", Lacazette he said.

The Wales global has just one year remaining on his current contract, but the Gunners coach has once again reiterated his desire to keep the midfielder at the Emirates, despite negations regarding an extension having hit a standstill.

Team spirit is important to both players and they are eager to make their partnership work.

But it turns out that the Uruguay worldwide had a very good reason for specifically requesting that particular number.

Arsenal manager Unai Emery must adapt to the rapid pace of the Premier League quickly if he is to lead the team to success this season, former defender Sol Campbell has said.

But judging on pre-season and the fact that Emery's side don't have Champions League football to contend with, they could be dark horses in the title race.
