Arsenal legend Ian Wright believes his old club is missing a player in the form of one they used to have on their books.

He never really won fans and joined Everton in 2019 for £40 million.
Ian Wright thinks Arsenal are missing a player with the qualities of Alex Iwobi
The midfielder has started the season strong and Wright thinks he has qualities that the gunners are currently missing.
“I’m so happy with the way he’s doing,” Wright told the Wrighty’s House podcast (via Arsenal Mania). “I remember Arsenal fans, it’s the same thing they did with Oxlade-Chamberlain, they made fun of him.
“His ball progression and pace of work, which Frank has now recognized him and put there, listen to the Everton fans when he does his job, they adore him now. I like the way it works for Iwobi.
Everton fans are now starting to realize that if they get the right players in and around him, he will be a force for them.
“If you look at his pace of work, it’s unbelievable. It’s the kind of intensity that Mikel wants and needs now, we need that, we need someone who can push like that.”
Iwobi seems to be enjoying life at Everton since joining the club in the summer of 2019
