Iwobi became a regular fixture in Arsene Wenger’s starting line-up at The Emirates as he scored two goals and made two assists in a total of 17 games in all competitions for Arsenal.
Sanchez has since been handed the number seven shirt at Arsenal, and the north London club confirmed on Friday that Iwobi – who previously wore number 45 – will be wearing the number 17 shirt from next season.
