He said “Arsenal and West Ham were interested in me and Chuba [Akpom], so we were training with both clubs for three years, because we were scouted at six and you can’t sign until you’re nine.
“I decided to sign for Arsenal because I supported them back then and I always saw them as the bigger club – no disrespect to West Ham.”Iwobi is the nephew of ex-Bolton star Jay-Jay Okocha and was born in Nigeria before moving to England at the age of four.
