Arsene Wenger has instructed Arsenal football club to tie down Nigerian starlet Alex Iwobi to a new deal that will ensure his future at the club is settled amidst admiration from some top premier league clubs.
Iwobi, who is Jay Jay Okochaâ€™s nephew, has had a blistering start since he joined the Arsenal first team and recently capped a brilliant performance against Barcelona in the champions league with a goal against Everton in the premier league.
Which has lead his club to offer him a new deal that will see his pay increase from Â£800 per week to Â£10,000 per week with bonuses.
Iwobi only signed a five-year deal in October, but his rapid progression and growth this season has pushed him into boss Arsene Wengerâ€™s first team plans. He is currently with the Super Eagles of Nigeria and could play a massive role in todayâ€™s AFCON qualifier against Egypt.
