England and Nigeria are involved in a tug of war over Arsenal starlet Alex Iwobi.
The 18-year-old – who is Nigeria legend Jay-Jay Okocha’s nephew – has been invited to attend a squad get together by the Nigerian FA.
Iwobi, who captain’s Arsenal’s Under-21 side, is highly rated at the Emirates Stadium and has already signed professional terms.
Iwobi has to decide whether his international future lies with either England or Nigeria
The teenager, who was born in Lagos, has represented England at U16, U17 and U18 level but Nigeria want to snatch the forward from under the FA’s noses.
Iwobi is close to making his first team breakthrough at the Emirates Stadium. He featured on the bench for Arsenal’s Champions League clash against Galatasaray in December.
The youngster, who can play on either wing, scored eight times in 35 appearances for Arsenal’s various youth sides last season.
