Arsenal have however made the move to secure the future of the 20-year-old by offering him another deal, just six months after the last contract.

In April 2016, the forward signed a £25,000-a-week deal after an impressive first season with the senior side.

His new contract is expected to take his weekly pay to £50,000-a-week.

Along with his fast rise in football, Iwobi is now a full Nigeria international having made his competitive debut for the Super Eagles earlier in 2016.
