Arsenal youngster Alex Iwobi believes he can influence a transfer move for Manchester City’s Kelechi Iheanacho to the North London club.
According to Iwobi, he would love to see Iheanacho in Arsenal’s traditional red and white jersey.
This comes even as the 20-year-old hailed the Man City forward, describing him as one of the funniest guys he knows.
Iwobi says he can convince Arsenal to sign Iheanacho
‘I tell you, you should see us [him and Iheanacho] on Snapchat! Always bantering,” Iwobi told Daily Mail “We’re roommates right now and he’s just the funniest guy I know.
‘We do get on well off the pitch as well as on the pitch.
“Maybe I can try to convince Arsenal to sign him – but I don’t think that’s going to happen.”
Iwobi surprised everyone when a video of him speaking fluent Pidgin English was posted on Twitter by teammate Ogenyi Onazi.
Reacting to how he has learned to speak the prevalent language in the Super Eagles’ camp, he said: “Everyone could speak English, I’d get along fine, but they’d all say, “come on, you need to learn your language”. So yeah, I’ve learned a bit, which helps.
”When I first went I felt like I’m an alien! I know they used to take the mick out of me, and I didn’t know what they were saying. But now I can understand!”
