After signing Granit Xhaka from Monchengladbach in the German Bundesliga, Arsene Wenger and his team of deal makers are looking like they mean business this summer. From all indicaiton, Arsenal have completed their second summer signing in Nigeria wonderkid Kelechi Nwakali.
The Nigerian who captained Nigeria to win the last FIFA under 17 world cup that took place in Chile in 2015 has taken to his facebook page to confirm he will be playing for Arsenal next season.
“New Life Begins @Arsenal.” Kelechi posted on his facebook page with the picture below;
The 17-year-old youngster who won the MVP award in the under 17 world cup confirmed he will be playing for Arsenal next season and posted a couple of pictures of himself in Arsenal shirt and others with himself, Arsene Wenger and Laurent Koscienly.
Arsenal appears to have beaten off interest from Porto and Manchester City to sign the Nigerian. He will be expected to play for the under 18s and under 21s next season and maybe a couple of games for the first team in the cup games or when there is injuries.
He will reportedly be given the number 25 shirt at Arsenal. The same that was worn by Nigeria Legend Kanu Nwankwom and Emmanuel Adeabayor ( who is also a Nigerian by birth ).
