It is all happening very fast for the latest star to burst out of the Arsenal academy, Alex Iwobi only having made his first team debut this season in a Capital One Cup match. But after some impressive showings from the subs bench and a very good game from the start of our Champions League tie in Barcelona, the 19-year old was handed his first Premier League start and grabbed it with both hands at Everton on Saturday.
That has got the England national team scrambling to stop him committing his international future to his birth country of Nigeria, which would happen if we were to play just one more game for them. Iwobi has already featured in two friendly games for the senior Nigeria side, though, so even though he did play 11 games for England at three different underage levels, it looks like he will be a Nigeria player in the future, just like his uncle Jay-Jay Okocha.
And Iwobi is already starting to show some of the great skills that made his uncle famous, which is why Arsenal are set to move quickly and get him signed up to a new contract worth 10 times the £1,000 a week he is on at the moment, according to The Sun.
