Alex Iwobi Headlines List Of Eleven Nigerian Players Retained By Arsenal
Super Eagles star Alex Iwobi headlines the list of eleven players of Nigerian descent retained by Arsenal for the 2019-2020 season.

Clubs must submit their retained and released lists to the Premier League by the third Saturday in May.

Nigeria U23 international Kelechi Nwakali has also been retained by the North London club amid speculation linking him with a permanent exit from the Emirates this summer.

In terms of the Gunners youth teams, Xavier Amaechi, Folarin Balogun, Tolaji Bola, Arthur Okonkwo, James Olayinka, Tobi Omole, Joseph Olowu, Bukayo Saka and Ryan Alebiosu will remain on the books of Arsenal, provided that they are not loaned out or sold before the close of the summer transfer window.

Of the aforementioned players, only Iwobi and Saka made appearances for Arsenal's first team last term.

Allnigeriasoccer.com previously reported that England U17 star of Nigerian parentage Miguel Azeez has penned a scholarship deal with the Gunners which will be activated on July 1, 2019.
