Iwobi admits it’s an ‘amazing feeling’ to extend Arsenal contract

Arsenal midfielder Alex Iwobi committed his long term future to the Gunners today by signing a new five-year-deal at the Emirates.

The 22-year-old made his first-team debut in 2015, and has gone on to make 98 appearances, scoring 9 goals.

Nigeria international Iwobi has expressed his delight at signing a new deal and revealed that representing Arsenal is fulfilling his childhood dreams.

“It’s always been my childhood dream to represent Arsenal,” Iwobi said to Arsenal’s official website.

“To get an extended contract is an amazing feeling and I hope I’m doing the Arsenal family proud, as well as my family.

“The first kit that I had was Arsenal and long may I continue to represent them.

“I always realise that I have to be representing the team and giving 100 per cent at all times. It’s not just myself or my family I’m representing, I also represent the people and the younger generation as well.”

Arsenal begin their Premier League campaign against Champions Manchester City on Sunday 12 August.
