The 20-year-old came through the ranks while Wilshere and Coquelin were already established at the north London club, and the Nigerian international says the duo have had a big impact on his career.
"He talks to me off the pitch because he has been through the same system as me, I just watch what he does - especially as I grew up as a No 10 and he's a No 10.
"I never thought I would be here at the age of 20, it's an amazing feeling to have made more than 50 appearances for Arsenal," he added.
"It is just the start of my career basically, so I just need to get more goals, more assists and make more appearances and do my best for the team.
"The manager, Steve Bould, everyone - even the players - have all given me advice on what to do, helping me on and off the pitch. Everyone has helped me get to where I am today."
