U-17 stars Nwakali and Chukwueze close to Arsenal move

Midfielders Kelechi Nwakali and Samuel Chukwueze , who were part of the title winning Nigerian team at the last FIFA U-17 world cup in Chile are close to completing a move to premier league club Arsenal, sources understand.

A host of Europe’s top clubs have been tracking Nwakali and Chukwueze after last year’s impressive outing at the world cup.

The Gunners look to have won the race to sign both players, despite Nwakali’s brother Chidiebere playing for Manchester City.

Meanwhile, Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger remains optimistic he will complete the signing of Basel midfielder Mohamed Elneny this week and a double deal for Nwakali and Chukwueze would offer a possible further boost.
