Alex Iwobi is poised to sign a new contract with Arsenal to keep him at the club until 2022, according to reports in the British media.

The Daily Mirror is reporting that Gunners boss Unai Emery is keen for the Nigeria international to commit his future to the north London side ahead of his first campaign in charge at The Emirates.

The same story says that Iwobi has already agreed terms on a new long-term deal with the north London club in a clear indication that he is a key part of Emery’s plans.

The article says that Iwobi’s new and improved contract will keep him at The Emirates until the summer of 2022 as the Gunners look to secure the future of the 22-year-old midfielder.

Iwobi is set to commit his future to Arsenal despite apparent interest from Lazio, AC Milan and Everton.

Meanwhile, Arsenal are currently in Singapore as they prepare to continue their pre-season schedule ahead of Emery’s first campaign in charge at the club.

The north London side will be aiming to at least break back into the top four next season after Arsenal ended up in sixth place in the Premier League table and without a trophy last term.
