Alex Iwobi first made his breakthrough to the Arsenal squad in the reign of Arsene Wenger when the gunners had an injury crisis and the young talented midfielder was quite impressive for the club hence getting promotion to the first team.

Iwobi is set to be one of the key substitutes, and the Nigerian will look to impose his authority on an Arsenal team that is short of wide attacking options.

"I'm excited. I enjoyed my time in Singapore and I'm enjoying training now and can't wait for the season to go ahead".

However, despite winning the Treble at PSG last season, Dickinson still thinks there are question marks over Emery, who left the Parc des Princes at the end of the previous campaign having spent two years in the French capital.

Iwobi has nine goals in 98 appearances for Arsenal.
