Alex Iwobi has reportedly agreed a new five-year deal at Arsenal. Despite interest from Lazio, the 22-year-old is set to sign a new Gunners contract that will see his future at the club secured until 2023. According to the Sun, the deal is worth around £70,000 per week and Iwobi will officially ink the agreement when the squad return from their pre-season trip to the Far East.
Arsenal are set to play Atletico Madrid and then PSG in Singapore as part of the International Champions Cup. New manager Unai Emery is understood to have had positive talks with the Nigerian and assured him he will be part of his plans moving forwards.
This is in stark contrast to the situation Jack Wilshere experienced with Emery, which resulted in the midfielder leaving for West Ham. Last season Iwobi scored three goals in 40 appearances for Arsenal in all competitions.
