Deal Close: Arsenal on verge of landing two World Cup heroes

wenger531Arsenal fans in the Transfer Tavern have silenced the loud punters at the pool table and turned the TV onto maximum volume to hear more about a proposed double-signing.

Metro, reporting via AfricanFootball.Com, state Arsenal are set to land a double deal for Nigerian starlets Kelechi Nwakali and Samuel Chukwueze this month.

The two teenagers, 17 and 16 respectively, rose to fame in the U17 World Cup in Chile last summer as Nigeria stormed to victory- with the performances of the duo attracting the attention of Bayern Munich and Manchester City.

Arsenal seemed to have stolen a march on the double-signing though, with the duo currently having their visas processed so they can travel to London and sign a contract with the back-to-back FA Cup champions.

The pair won’t be handed professional contracts until they turn 18 but will sign long-term deals with the Gunners, joining another youngster and their compatriot Alex Iwobi at the North London giants.

Whilst they won’t make an immediate improvement on the squad, the fans and the landlord here unanimously agree that this would be a major coup for the Gunners and gives fans something to be excited for in the future.

Arsenal fans, how many signings do you need this month? Let us know in the comments below!
