London - Alex Iwobi is determined to make an impression for
Arsenal this season and is motivated by the progression made by his childhood
pal Chuba Akpom, who broke into the first team of the Gunners before him.
Akpom, who is on loan at Hull City until June 2016, started
his career with the Tigers on the right foot, having netted in each of his last
two games in all competitions.
''I was happy for him, to join Hull City on loan,'' Alex
Iwobi told arsenal.com.
''I was speaking with his family and I could see that he was
really happy to go on loan because he just want to get some minutes and prove a
point. Hopefully Hull will be the team for him.''
