Arsenal midfielder Iwobi pinching himself ahead of Europa League final

Arsenal midfielder Alex Iwobi admits he's pinching himself ahead of playing in the Europa League final against Chelsea next week.

The academy graduate stated that winning the Europa League with Arsenal would be a "dream" as he prepares for one of the biggest games of his career so far.

"To be here and have an opportunity to play in such a big final is great," he told Sky Sports.

"I've had many dreams of winning things for Arsenal at a young age. I never thought I'd make it this far.

"Every trophy to us is special, we always want to do our best and win as many as we can, and the Europa League final is another one we can win."
