“Iwobi will be involved with Arsenal pre-season and it is only after that he will join up with the Nigeria squad for the Rio Olympics,” a source informed. “It’s only after his pre-season he will be available for Nigeria and (coach) Samson Siasia has agreed to this arrangement.”At 20, Iwobi is eligible for the Olympics and even trained with the Olympic team before he made his full international debut for Nigeria in October last year.
