Arsenal manager Unai Emery has confirmed Alex Iwobi is set to sign a new contract with the club.
Alex Iwobi, who featured for Nigeria at the World Cup, has two years left on his current deal, and Emery says the Arsenal academy graduate will sign an extension having returned for pre-season training.
“I have the information – he’s near. First, I want to work with every player, and they are coming [back from their breaks after World Cup duty],” Emery said.
“Mesut [Ozil], Iwobi, [Mohamed] Elneny are starting to work with us, the first week is very good. My information is he is going to sign and continue with us.”
