Alex Iwobi wants to stay at Arsenal for "many, many years" and would even turn down an approach from Barcelona, according to his father.

The 20-year-old has established himself as a regular starter for Arsenal in recent weeks, making 14 appearances in all competitions this season.

At this point in time, he is at the right place. He's doing well at Arsenal, but should any club come for him now, the answer would certainly be no.

For him now, it's not about the money. So, should a club like Barcelona come with more money, he will certainly stay back at Arsenal because now it is not about him making money, it's about him concentrating on his career, progressing and going on to the next stage.

He has broken into the first team and what they all talk about is his humility. Personally, that's very important because when a player starts getting arrogant that's when the player fails.

I see him being with Arsenal for very many, many years.
