Arsenal supporting punters here in the Transfer Tavern have been alerted to the news coming in from African Football via Metro – with the publication claiming that Arsenal are set to sign Nigerian starlet Samuel Chukwueze, with the player jetting into London on Monday night.
The forward’s name has been bandied around numerous times over the past few weeks here in the Tavern, and it now seems like a move to the Emirates Stadium will become a reality for the player.
Our resident Arsenal fans are still absolutely buzzing after their last gasp win over Leicester City on Sunday, with them all agreeing that they are now serious contenders for the Premier League trophy!
This news that Chukwueze is closing in on a move to north London has also got them in a jubilant mood, with every Gooner here in the Tavern admitting the club are in dire need of some more attacking options to relieve the burden on Olivier Giroud.
Speaking to African Football, the Nigerian said: ‘My trip to London is on Monday night,’
‘I’m happy that everything is going well and I will do my best when I get there by the grace of God.’
Our landlord admits that this could be an incredibly astute purchase for Wenger and his team, but says that the Nigerian will be getting nowhere near the first-team anytime soon.
