The product of Hale End Academy singled out Santi Cazorla as the standout player he has had the privilege of playing alongside, additionally mentioning his partial knowledge of French, acquired through his connections at Arsenal.

Speaking to Voice of Nigeria, Iwobi said: “The best player I have played with is Santi Cazorla when I was at Arsenal.
