The 19-year-old superstar who is also the nephew of Jay-Jay Okocha and has now extended his stay with the Gunners. Talking about agreeing the deal with the north London side, he told the club’s official website, “I’m delighted to have signed a new contract, especially with a club like Arsenal who are so big. I’m happy to sign for them. I like to think I have earned it. I have gone through a lot with Arsenal so to have a new and improved contract is very good and I’m happy to have earned it. I have had ups and downs. As I was growing up, I had a lot of downs but as I get older things just keep getting better and better. The ultimate goal is to break into the first team and play as many games as I can.
