Reports linking the FIFA U-17’s Golden Ball winner Kelechi Nwakali, to Arsenal are false, that’s according to allnigeriasoccer.com .
Quotes credited to the Golden Eaglets number ten by the Nigerian press suggested that the central midfielder would prefer a move to The Emirates ahead of The Etihad, but those reports should be taken with a pinch of salt, according to one of his reps.
“The story is nonsense, it is fake news. It is not true he is joining Arsenal. People can only keep on speculating but the truth will soon be known, ” a source close to Kelechi Nwakali said.
West Ham are amongst the Premier League teams interested in the signature of the ASJ Academy talent, while Manchester City have also been credited with an interest.
