Announcement Soon As Star Player Agrees Personal Terms

Arsenal Banter brings you latest update on Arsenal news from top media sites like Daily Mail, Metro, The Express, The Independent, The Telegraph, SkySports and so on.

Galatasaray are looking to sign Arsenal winger Alex Iwobi on loan, according to Takvim.

The Turkish publication reports that Sporting director Cenk Ergun is in charge of negotiations for the 21 year-old, and they say the official is prepared to take a trip down to England next week to seal a deal if they get the go ahead from the Gunners.

The Super Lig club’s interest has no doubt been ignited by Iwobi’s lack of game time for Arsenal so far this season. The switch to a back three makes it more challenging for wingers to be included in the starting eleven, and despite starting the Community Shield victory against Chelsea at the beginning of the month, the Nigerian has only made the bench for the first two Premier League games.

Still, it would be surprising if manager Arsene Wenger decided to let Iwobi leave on loan considering his progress over the last year, and he will no doubt get more time on the pitch during the Europa League group stages, and the early rounds of the Carabao Cup.
