Alex Iwobi has been offered a new and improved contract deal of £30,000 a week keeping him at the Emirates until 2021. Iwobi’s previous contract was believed to have been around £10,000 a week and due to run out in 2019.
The 19 year old Nigerian International was given the opportunity of a life time to play in the starting 11 against Barcelona at NOU Camp last month.
Since then, Iwobi has been the stand out player in the Arsenal squad, scoring 2 goals in two matches and winning man of the matches for those two games. He has pace, intelligence, awareness and agility to move forward even when under pressure by several opponents.
Arsene Wenger has been so impressed by the 19 year old that he has rewarded the exciting teenager with a long term future at Arsenal.
Alex Iwobi has been a breath of fresh air for Arsenal and if he continues his goal scoring form he will be the unexpected hero if Arsenal go onto winning the Premier League title.
