After his impressive showing against Everton last week, it was claimed that Arsenal would give Alex Iwobi a bumper payrise.

They player reportedly earns £750-a-week and the club were going to up that to £6,750 – a 900% rise.

Now, according to the Mirror, his new deal will see him earn over £10,000 a week – an insane sum for a 19-year-old but relative peanuts in football today at this level.

Iwobi only signed a five-year-deal in October but it is claimed that Arsenal have already put this new deal to the Nigerian. He signed his first deal when he was just seven.

Iwobi is currently on international duty with his country despite England trying to lure him to play for them. His side will face Mohamed Elneny and Egypt on Friday and Iwobi is fit after a bout of food poisoning landed him in hospital at the start of the week.
