Arsenal supporting punters here inside the Football Transfer Tavern have been in a downbeat mood after they were beaten by Chelsea on the weekend, however, the news from Evening Standard via the Independent has got them all intrigued!
The publication claims that the Gunners are close to agreeing a deal for Nigerian star Kelechi Nwakali, with the 17-year-old’s brother confirming a deal to take him to the Emirates is close.
Our resident Gooners enjoying a beer and burger special here in the Tavern admit they have no idea who the Nigerian player is, but are hoping Wenger has found a hidden gem that can become a future first-team player!
Our landlord here in the Tavern admits he has heard of Nwakali after he helped his native country to win the Under-17 World Cup last year – and our landlord feels he could be an incredibly astute purchase!
The Evening Standard suggests that Manuel Pellegrini’s Manchester City are also keen on a move for the promising Nigerian, but with Nwakali’s brother claiming that a deal to Arsenal is close, it looks like the Citizens are set to miss out.
Arsenal fans….. What do you make of this news? Would this be a good signing for the club? Know much about Nwakali? Let us know your thoughts and opinions in the comments below!
