Alex Iwobi

Premier League giants Arsenal have celebrated forward Alex Iwobi on the occasion of his debut anniversary at the club.

The Gunners paid tribute to the 22-year-old via their official Twitter handle on Saturday morning.

The North London giants celebrated the Super Eagles of Nigeria star on his third year anniversary in the Arsenal first team.

Alex Iwobi made his Arsenal debut on Wednesday, October 27, 2015 during the Gunners’ 3-0 loss to English Championship side Sheffield Wednesday in a League club clash.

The Arsenal Academy graduate went on to make his Premier League debut in the 3-0 away victory over Welsh side Swansea City, who were relegated from the top flight at the end of last season.

Iwobi started his Arsenal career with a bang before his output dwindled under former manager Arsene Wenger.

The appointment of Unai Emery as the replacement for Wenger has reinvigorated Iwobi and propelled him to be one of the best players in the current Arsenal squad.

The highlight of his season came on Monday night when he was named the man-of-the-match after helping the Gunners to a 3-1 win over Leicester City at the Emirates Stadium.

Arsenal came from a goal down to beat the Foxes and secure a 7th straight league win.
