Arsenal midfielder Alex Iwobi has signed a new "long-term" deal with the club, reportedly until 2023.

The 22-year-old Nigeria international has played 98 games, scoring nine goals, since making his debut in 2015.

"From young, it has always been my dream to represent Arsenal," said Iwobi. "It feels so special. The first kit I had was of Arsenal and long may I continue to represent them."

Boss Unai Emery said: "I'm very pleased Alex has signed a new contract."

He added: "He is a great example of a player who can succeed from the academy through hard work and I look forward to working with him and our other talented young players in the squad."

Iwobi joins defender Calum Chambers and midfielder Granit Xhaka in signing new deals with the club this summer.

Meanwhile Arsenal striker Chuba Akpom has signed for Greek Super League side PAOK Salonika.

Arsenal have not disclosed the fee they received for the 22-year-old academy graduate, who has been loaned to six different clubs over the last five seasons.
