Arsenal have confirmed that Alex Iwobi has signed a new long-term contract at the Emirates.
It’s believed the Nigeria international has signed a deal that ties him to the Gunners until 2022.
The midfielder joined the club’s Hale End Academy when he was still in primary school progressing through the ranks to make his first team debut in a League Cup defeat to Sheffield Wednesday in 2015. He’s since made 98 appearances for the club.
Speaking about the deal, new boss Unai Emery said, “I’m very pleased Alex has signed a new contract with us.
“He is a great example of a player who can succeed from the Academy through hard work and I look forward to working with him and our other talented young players in the squad.”
Iwobi finished last season with 3 goals and 7 assists in all competitions, so let’s hope the security of the deal and the faith shown in him by the club will enable him to improve on that in the upcoming campaign.
