Iwobi Set To Sign Contract Extension With Arsenal

Iwobi Set To Sign Contract Extension With Arsenal

Nigeria winger, Alex Iwobi, is on the verge of signing a new long-term contract  with English Premier League club,  Arsenal.

Iwobi, according to a report in British news outlet, mirror.co.uk has agreed terms on an improved contract following talks which have been ongoing since the end of last season.

His  previous deal, signed in 2015, ran until 2020.

But the 22 year-old attacking midfielder is set to extend his stay at Arsenal until 2022 when he puts pen to paper on his new agreement.

Italian clubs,  Lazio and AC Milan as well as Everton are reported  to be interested in signing the young winger.

Having left contract renewals until too late in the past, Arsenal have been on a drive this year to tie down some of their players.

Mesut Ozil, Mohamed Elneny, Granit Xhaka, Calum Chambers, Rob Holding and Ainsley Maitland-Niles have all penned fresh deals in 2018 and academy product Iwobi will be next.

Italian online news outlet, II Messaggero had earlier reported that the Gunners have placed a price tag of £22.3m on the winger.

  • Three goals and five assists across 28 matches for Arsenal last season leaves massive room for improvement for an attacker who would want, in future, to be regarded an Arsenal legend.

    Iwobi enjoyed a lot of playing time under erstwhile coach Arsene Wenger. For that to continue, Alex will need to massively improve his goals-to-games ratio as well as exhibit the sort of maturity in his game that will convince his (new) coach and doubtful Arsenal fans that he truly deserves his place in the London club moreso as they seek to reclaim past glory in thr post-Wenger era.

    “To be regarded as an Arsenal legend”???? Who gives a damn about him becoming a legend in a club but there is nothing bad if he does sha. I just feel saying becoming A NIGERIAN LEGEND would be better. And for him to do that, he must play continually at a top club in Europe which am pretty sure that what most of us want from Iwobi.
