Unai Emery: Iwobi will sign new five-year deal.

Nigeria international Alex Iwobi is set to sign a new contract at the Emirates, Arsenal head coach Unai Emery has confirmed.

The 22-year-old has two years left on his current contract. However, Emery says Iwobi will sign an extension having returned for pre-season training.

"I have the information - he's near. First, I want to work with every player, and they are coming [back from their breaks after World Cup duty]," Emery told Sky Sports.

"Mesut [Ozil], Iwobi, [Mohamed] Elneny are starting to work with us, the first week is very good. My information is he is going to sign and continue with us."
