Chelsea looking to pip Liverpool to signing of Arsenal star, report claims

Petr Cech was the hero in Arsenal's penalty shoot-out victory after Alexandre Lacazette's injury-time equalizer offset Antonio Rudiger's early goal. Wenger's final season saw him fail to guide his side to the Champions League, but there are high hopes that, under the tutelage of Emery, that Arsenal can make it back into Europe's top competition.

Iwobi recently revealed that he had been about to leave the club thrice, but new manager Unai Emery seems to believe in him too.

Ramsey has yet to show any indication of signing a new contract with Arsenal.

But, new head coach Unai Emery confirmed on the recent pre-season tour of Singapore that the forward was close to agreeing fresh terms.

Alex Iwobi first made his breakthrough to the Arsenal squad in the reign of Arsene Wenger when the gunners had an injury crisis and the young talented midfielder was quite impressive for the club hence getting promotion to the first team.

Arsenal have been in talks with Ramsey's agent this summer but so far an agreement has not been reached and the midfielder admitted last month that he is unsure when negotiations would be resolved.

However, the new deal is a sign Emery hopes to help the Nigeria worldwide develop, although he faces stiff competition for a starting place from the likes of Ozil, Ramsey and Henrikh Mkhitaryan this season.

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

"The first kit that I had was Arsenal and long may I continue to represent them".
