Arsenal star Alex Iwobi met his uncle and former Bolton Wanderers captain Jay-Jay Okocha before reporting to London Colney for training.

Iwobi was in action as Nigeria bagged a 3-1 win over Seychelles in their final 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers last Friday and also played a part in their 1-0 win over Egypt in Tuesday’s international friendly.

His international commitment ruled him out of the Gunners’ 3-2 win over Al Nassr in Dubai on Tuesday but he is set to join the rest of squad as they prepare for Monday’s Premier League match against Newcastle United at Emirates Stadium.

For Arsenal fans, they will be hoping that his meeting with his uncle, seven-time African Footballer of the Year, spurs him to extend his tally of three goals in 27 league appearances as the club chase a qualification ticket for next season’s Uefa Champions League.
