Sky Sports News HQ understands negotiations between Arsenal and Alex Iwobi over a new long-term contract are ongoing.

On Tuesday, the Daily Mirror suggested Iwobi had agreed to sign a new five-year contract with the Gunners, worth around £30,000-a-week. 

But Sky sources understand the 19-year-old is yet to finalise terms over a new deal, although talks are continuing between the player and the club.

Iwobi, who has been labelled as 'special' by manager Arsene Wenger, only signed a new four-year deal with Arsenal in October. 

But he has since impressed with a string of strong performances and has scored in his last two matches, helping Arsenal claim victories over Everton and Watford.
