The forward is closing in on a return to action after recovering from illness and could be involved in Saturday’s clash with Newcastle United

Arsenal’s Alex Iwobi has resumed first-team training with the English Premier League side.

The 22-year-old missed out of the Gunners’ 3-2 victory over Cardiff due to illness. He was also excused from Nigeria’s Africa Cup of Nations’ clash versus Seychelles.

Iwobi posted a picture of himself and some teammates in training – an indication that he is back to his feet.

The Super Eagles’ star has made two starting appearances for the north London side with a game to his name.

Unai Emery’s men are sixth in the English topflight log with six points from for outings thus far.
