Iwobi took to his Twitter to share the photos with the caption ‘birthday boy’.

He posted the photo of himself as a child in Arsenal shirt showing how far he has been with the club.

The 20-year-old joined Arsenal while still at primary school and was first involved in a first-team match as an unused substitute in a League Cup match against West Bromwich Albion on 25 September 2013.

The forward has been one of the positives from Arsenal’s trophyless season following his breakthrough into the first team.

He has become a starter in Arsenal’s recent games as a result of his impressive form.

It has been a good 2016 for the forward who also became a full Nigeria international. After making his Super Eagles debut last year, he played against Egypt in Kaduna which was his first competitive game for Nigeria.
