Wright has however cleared the doubts of Arsenal supporters when he gave his opinion on the issue as a pundit on the BBC.

Wright who is Arsenal’s second highest top scorer stated that the new manager will be able to bring out the best out of Iwobi and the club's youngsters.

“When you look at (Ainsley) Maitland-Niles, Iwobi, (Kostantinos) Mavropanos, Reiss Nelson, Joe Willock, if that’s all they’ve got (on Arsenal’s young players), I feel those players are good enough to go to the next level with somebody who is going to coach them and help them progress,” Wright said.

 “Anybody that is looking to progress the players, young or old (manager), as long as they are ready to promote people from the academy like the boys I’ve just named,” Wright concluded.

Iwobi was unable to save Arsenal as they lost 3-1 to Leicester City in a Premier League encounter.

He is expected to return to action when Arsenal travel for Arsene Wenger's last game in charge of the Gunners against Huddersfield Town on Sunday, May 13.
