Arsenal forward, Alex Iwobi has reacted to reports that the club has begun to make plans to sign Wilfried Zaha from Crystal Palace.

This according to him, would mean that he has to fight for a place in the starting lineup again, just as he had done for many years before being given regular playing time last season.

Iwobi who apparently did not like the idea of signing another player to take up his role, iterated that he would still keep fighting but adding Zaha to the team may force him to consider other options outside the club.

Speaking to The Sun on the development, Iwobi explained, “I am not one to chicken out. I have had it all over the years, being told I’m not good enough.”

“So whenever the chance comes I always try and prove I should be starting. But it’s going to be difficult if Zaha comes. He will add more stress.

2I am up for the fight but the only time I would consider leaving is if I am not playing as much as I would like to.

“If it comes to that I would have no choice but to leave. But I would always put up a fight to play — that is what I have done all my life.”

Zaha has been a top target for the Gunners this summer, with a price tag of £80million.
