Breakout Arsenal attacker agrees new contract until 2021

Arsenal starlet Alex Iwobi has signed a new deal that will keep him at the club until 2021, according to reports from the Mirror.

Iwobi has emerged from the youth ranks to become an integral part of Arsene Wenger’s side in recent matches, scoring two goals in his last two games for the Gunners.

And to reward his improvement, Wenger has handed the forward a new five-year deal worth £30,000-a-week, despite the youngster only penning a new contract worth £10,000-a-week back in October.

The 19-year-old was involved in an international tussle last week, with England hoping Iwobi would prefer to play for the Three Lions rather than Nigeria.

However, the attacker chose to play for his country of birth by making his first competitive appearance for the Super Eagles against Egypt.

Iwobi has been with Arsenal since 2004, finally making his debut last October in the League Cup against Sheffield Wednesday, a game which ended in a 3-0 loss for the Gunners.
