Iwobi eyes first team spot at Arsenal

07 October 2015, 21:45

London - Arsenal youngster Alex Iwobi, who recently signed a new long term deal with the gunners, is presently eyeing a first team spot at the team despite reports linking him with a loan move.

"I like to think I have earned it. I have gone through a lot with Arsenal, so to have a new and improved contract is very good and I'm happy to have earned it," he told Arsenal.com

“I have had ups and downs. As I was growing up I had a lot of downs but as I get older things just keep getting better and better.

“The ultimate goal is to break into the first team and play as many games as I can.”

19 year old Iwobi is presently with the Nigeria senior National team in Belgium, where they are preparing for two friendly games against Congo DR and Cameroun.

There are indications he might make his senior team debut in either of the fixtures, although he is yet to play a competitive game for Arsenal at senior level, but impressed during their pre-season tour of Singapore and scored in the 6-0 rout of Lyon in the Emirates cup.
