Cape Town - Arsenal winger Alex Iwobi has faith in manager Arsene Wenger's ability to win another Premier League title despite the club's 13-year drought.

Wenger's future with the Gunners was in doubt throughout the latter part of the season after disappointing results saw his side finish outside the top four for the first time in his 21-year reign.

However, the Frenchman signed a two-year contract last week and Iwobi believes the experienced manager still has what it takes to win another Premier League title. 

“I’m backing Arsene Wenger to win the league title at Arsenal again," Iwobi told The Sun.

“There won’t be a single player in our dressing room next season who will not fight for him. We’d run through brick walls for the boss.

“I’m pleased because he really is Mr Arsenal, isn’t he? He has made it the great institution it is today.”

Meanwhile Arsenal coach Arsene Wenger and chief executive Ivan Gazidis were spotted at an airport in the French city of Nice with the two believed to enter negotiations to sign midfielder Jean Seri and make a world-record £110 million bid for Monaco's Kylian Mbappe.
