Arsenal midfielder Alex Iwobi has revealed how he came close to joining Celtic. Aged 16, the Nigeria international was at a career crossroads after being told he was free to leave the London club back in 2012.

He told Arsenal's matchday programme: “My situation was weird. There was three of us at the time and we were basically told 'stay if you want, or if not you are free to go. It was up to me and at that moment I went to the Crystal Palace training ground to see them. I had offers from Celtic and Southampton as well. Celtic was the main one but I wasn't ready to go to Scotland. I thought it was best to stay at Arsenal but I have to say it felt weird".
