Nigerian youngster Alex Iwobi is set to get a new bumper contract at Arsenal – just six months after his last deal, reports the Daily Mirror.
The 20-year old signed an agreement worth £25,000-a-week in April but is now in line for a further extension, which underlines him becoming a fixture in the first team this season.
Iwobi has impressed for the Gunners this season, and returned straight back to the starting lineup after returning from a three-week injury he suffered on the opening weekend of the season
He has been so good this season that he has impressed the club’s top brass and manager Arsene Wenger so much with his progress, and will be rewarded with a big rise and another improved contract if he keeps it up.
Iwobi has been one of Wenger’s best recent success stories and Arsenal want to tie him down for the long term and take him up to a good first-team salary.
The Gunners are also set to open discussions with Hector Bellerin , now Manchester City particularly keen on the Spanish right-back, the reports further claimed.
Wenger is also hopeful of tying down Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez to big new deals.
