Arsenal Manager Unai Emery has confirmed he will work with Nigeria international Alex Iwobi for several more seasons.
Emery said at a press conference Friday that he believes Iwobi will sign a contract extension to prolong his Arsenal stay.
The 46-year-old Manager expressed pleasure with the midfielder’s abilities after the player’s first training session with the club, since returning from his world cup duties with Nigeria.
“I have the information, usually it’s near,” Emery said.
“I want to work with the players first. This week, Mesut, Elneny and Iwobi are starting to work with us and our first impression is very good with them. My information is that he is going to sign and continue with us.”
Iwobi, 22, is an Arsenal academy product and signed his first professional contract in 2015. He has since gone on to make 98 appearances for the London club and won the FA Cup.
