Super Eagles attacker Alexander Chuka Iwobi is doubtful for Arsenal’s quarter-final FA Cup engagement with non-league Lincoln City on Saturday, March 11.

The 20-year-old had to pull out of the squad that were beaten 5-1 by Bayern Munich in the UEFA Champions League due to illness, and manager Arsene Wenger has hinted that he has not yet recovered.

“I believe that we have two uncertainties: Welbeck, who had to come off after the warm-up against Bayern due to sickness, and Iwobi, who on the day of the game couldn’t turn up as well due to the same problem,” Wenger told

The former England U-16, U-17 and U-18 player has been handed a call-up for Nigeria’s friendlies against Senegal and Burkina Faso in London and is expected to be in the camp by March 20.
