Arsenal manager, Arsène Wenger believes Alex Iwobi will need to bring something extra to his game to score his first goals for the club this season.
Wenger played Iwobi in the number 10 role in the 2-0 EFL Cup win against Reading on Tuesday night, and he watched him link the play smartly.
Iwobi had sights of goal against Reading but he could not finish and one moment served to undermine what was a positive all-round performance and Wenger says the Super Eagles man must banish nerves to become a more complete footballer.
“He (Iwobi) is not a typical winger and I think he can play in the number 10 role.
“He turns the game forward, he passes the ball through the lines very well, he has a final ball in him.
“I think he has all in the locker to pass and give the final ball. What you want from him now is the finishing – that’s still a little part that is missing in his game.
“He is too nervous at the moment when he has the possibility to finish,” Wenger said.
Iwobi scored two goals for Arsenal last season.
