Nigeria international Alex Iwobi is not one of the top earners at FA Cup kings Arsenal.

Based on statistics compiled by the Daily Star, the Gunners number seventeen takes home 30,000 pounds (around N13.74 million) every week, £120,000 less than the highest paid player, new signing Sead Kolasinac.

Iwobi is the third least paid player at the Emirates outfit, he gets triple the wages of England U21 star Rob Holding and six times the amount paid to Poland youth-teamer Krystian Bielik.

The Hale End Academy product pocketed £850-per-week after signing his first professional contract with the Gunners in May 2014, a reward for his outstanding performance in the FA Youth Cup.

Last season, the highly-rated winger made 39 appearances for Arsenal in all competitions.
