Since his debut in 2015, Iwobi made 149 appearances for Arsenal. In an emotional social media post to Arsenal supporters, he wrote; 

“I grew up dreaming of playing for Arsenal, following in the footsteps of some of my heroes.

“I’m proud to say that at 23 I’ve achieved one of my dreams. From playing for Arsenal Kids to 149 senior appearances. It was an honour to play for the club I supported as a boy. I’ve enjoyed every minute of it.

“[There are] so many people to thank, far too many individual names to mention but I thank you all. So many great moments, from scoring my first goal at the Emirates to scoring my last goal in Baku.

“You’ve all played a big part in my fantastic 17 years. Special thanks to the fans, my team-mates, the support staff, my coaches Arsene Wenger and Unai Emery who put faith in me and gave me the opportunity to grow as a player and a man.

“BIG love to a special club. Arsenal will be forever in my heart. #Gunners #BIG17.”
