Arsenal need ‘miracle’ to win Premier League title - Kanu

Forward Nelson netted a first-half rebound after Alex Iwobi's low strike hit the base of the post.

Arsenal did not specify the length of the deal for the 22-year-old Nigeria global, who came through the ranks with the Gunners, but reports said it would run until 2023.

Ramsey could leave for nothing next summer unless the 27-year-old agrees to a new deal with the League Cup runners up.

Iwobi described it as an "amazing feeling" to be handed a new long-term deal, explaining that playing for the Gunners was always a "childhood dream" of his.

'To get an extended contract is an wonderful feeling and I hope I'm doing the Arsenal family proud, as well as my family'.

Cech is 36 and now faces a major battle for a starting place in Unai Emery's new-look Arsenal side this season following the arrival of German goalkeeper Bernd Leno.

"It feels so special. So I'll try and continue making them proud". I always realise that I have to be representing the team and giving 100 per cent at all times.

Iwobi, who scored Arsenal's winning penalty against London rivals, Chelsea, is also aiming to shine in The Gunners' last pre-season match versus SS Lazio of Italy this weekend.

"I'm excited. I enjoyed my time in Singapore and I'm enjoying training now and can't wait for the season to go ahead".

Iwobi has nine goals in 98 appearances for Arsenal.

In the absence of Kolasinac and Monreal, Ainsley Maitland-Niles played the full 90 minutes as the Gunners finished their first pre-season under Emery with a 2-0 against Lazio at the Friends Arena at Stockholm on Saturday evening.
