Manchester United great Sir Alex Ferguson admits he’s been ‘impressed’ with Arsenal winger Alex Iwobi this season.

The 20-year-old emerged from the Gunners’ academy last season and became a first-team regular towards the end of the last campaign.

The Nigerian forward is yet to score this term but he’s helped transform the Gunners’ play this season with Arsene Wenger’s side playing a more typical free-flowing brand of football than supporters have seen in the last few years.

And Ferguson admits he’s been impressed with the youngster, who he believes has helped to make Wenger’s side title rivals this term.

You shouldn’t forget Arsenal [in the title race],’ Ferguson told Kicker.

‘The team is more sturdy. They’ve got better and more aggressive. I’m impressed with the young boy Alex Iwobi.’
