The Frenchman worked in the Arsenal academy for a time, before leaving last summer after Arsene Wenger failed to give him a contract extension.

When asked who his ‘all time’ favourite Arsenal player was, Iwobi said: “Thierry Henry, defo.”

Iwobi has also tipped close friend Chuba Akpom to soon follow the likes of Riess Nelson and Ainsley Maitland-Niles into the first team.

“I don’t know who to expect because you never know at this time who will come through,” he added. “But I would say Chuba Akpom.”

Iwobi made his senior Gunners debut three years after the Frenchman made his final appearance during a 2012 loan spell.
