Arsenal coach, Arsene Wenger has set 16 goals benchmark for Nigeria’s sensation, Alex Iwobi.

Wenger disclosed this at a press conference following Arsenal’s 2 – 0 win over Brighton & Hove Albion in the Premier League last Sunday.

The game against Brighton & Hove makes it Iwobi’s sixth appearance in all competitions this season.

Iwobi had earlier shrugged off an injury before netting his first goal for the Gunners since January 2017, and Wenger believes the player can do more.

He said: “I think he’s a kind of player who has a good availability.

“He helps you a lot to get out of pressure when you are in a build up game and create spaces. What you want from him is final balls and goals as well. A player like him must score 10 goals and he must as well give between six and 10 assists and that’s what I want from him.’’
