According to the official statement from Arsenal, “Iwobi has signed a new long-term contract with Arsenal.”
“Everyone at Arsenal would like to congratulate Alex on his new contract and we look forward to his continued progression in the season ahead.”
Super Eagles coach, Sunday Oliseh has already called-up the Arsenal youngster for this month’s international friendlies against DR Congo and Cameroon in Belgium.
