Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has said Nigeria star Alex Iwobi will have to work on his finishing to be a more complete player.

The 20-year-old Iwobi has gradually warmed his way into the Arsenal first team while also establishing himself with the Super Eagles.

Legendary Manchester United boss Alex Ferguson has already said he is impressed with the exciting Nigeria youngster.

However, Wenger said clinical finishing is what is now missing in Iwobi’s game.

“He turns the game forward, he passes the ball through the lines very well. He has a final ball in him. He is now a little bit, I think he has it all in the locker to pass and give the final ball,” said the Arsenal manager.

“What you want from him now is the finishing, you know. That’s still a little part that is missing in his game. I think he is too nervous at the moment when he has the possibility to finish.”
