Official ! Spotted Training With The Gunners First Team – Announcement Imminent

Arsenal Banter brings you latest update on Arsenal news from top media sites like Daily Mail,
Metro, The Express, The Independent, The Telegraph, SkySports and so on.

Kelechi Nwakali has been training with the Arsenal U23s in anticipation of an expected loan move this summer.

The young Nigerian had a strong performance with Maastricht in the Netherlands second tier, almost helping them to promotion to the top flight Eredivise, neting in their 3-2 aggregate semi-final win.

Now he is back at ht etraining ground with Arsenal, the plan is to loan him out back for the 2017-18 season as he still hasn’t secured a work permit. Kelechi himself seems delighted with the situation, tweeting earlier in the month that he had had a good talk with Arsene Wenger.

The midfielder’s contract with the Gunners is still valid for another four years. Arsenal have stiff competition for a starting place, so it will be essential Nwakali can get regular playing time at a higher level than the Arsenal reserves.

Arsenal are hoping to get secure Nwakali a work permit as soon as possible so next year he can take part in the pre-season preparations with the first team.
