Gunners hand 18-year-old Nigerian defender first professional contract

Arsenal on Monday announced that the 18-year-old has signed his first professional contract with the club.

The Nigeria defender first joined the Academy at the age of seven. He joined Arsenal’s pre academy before signing as an under-9, developing through the ranks in the same group as fellow Academy graduate, Bukayo Saka.

Alebiosu made 21 league appearances for club’s under-18s last term and made his debut for club’s under-23s against Liverpool in January.
