Emery Confirms Iwobi Is Ready To Sign New Arsenal Deal

Arsenal manager, Unai Emery has confirmed that The Gunners’ Nigerian winger, Alex Iwobi, is close to penning a new deal with the Gunners, Completesportsnigeria. com reports.

Iwobi has two years remaining on the current contract he signed with the club two years ago.

Reports emerged last week that the North London club have offered him a new five year contract worth £70,000 per week.

And Emery who replaced Arsene Wenger as Arsenal boss has further confirmed the Nigeria international’s status at the club.

“I have the information – he’s near,” Emery said. “First, I want to work with every player, and they are coming,” Emery told reporters ahead of Arsenal’s pre-season clash against Paris Saint-Germain on Saturday.

“Ozil, Iwobi, Elneny are starting to work with us, the first week is very good. My information is he (Iwobi) is going to sign and continue with us.”

Iwobi made 26 appearances in the Premier League last season and scored three times for the Gunners.

  • Una Emery, do you know what will make me fall in love with you forever? it is if you “work with” Iwobi the same way Guardiola worked with Raheem Sterling then, I will be your number one new fan.

    Raheem had skills, talents and potentials. They just needed the right coach (in Guardiola) to unlock these and the young Englishman became 23 goals-a-season player.

    Similarly for Iwobi, the potentials are immense and the possibilities, tasty. If coach Emery can unlock something in him, then Iwobi’s goals-to-games ratio, as well as his overall play, can also improve exponentially.
