One of Arsenal’s most promising starlets to emerge from the Hale End Academy, Armstrong Okoflex has been snapped up by Scottish topflight giants, Celtic,  according to various reports in the United Kingdom.

Okoflex, 16, reportedly turned down a scholarship contract offered to him by the Gunners to sign for the Glasgow club, and will likely play in the club’s development team for next season while eyeing up a very likely crack at first team action.

Described as a player with real quality and dazzling skills, the highly rated youngster has represented Ireland and England at youth levels while remaining eligible to represent Nigeria.

Okoflex played seven games for Arsenal U18s at the tail end of last season, scoring a goal in the 5-1 thrashing of West Ham on January, 30th.

Born in Dublin, he previously had trails with both West Ham and Spurs before opting to move to Arsenal five years ago.
