Alex Iwobi

With nine goals in the under-21s’ final nine games of the campaign, powerful forward Alex was the academy’s form player in the second half of last season.

Naturally a winger, the Lagos-born attacker - who is the nephew of former Bolton star Jay-Jay Okocha - was converted into a central striker and caught the eye with a hat-trick against Stoke City at Emirates Stadium.
