Judging by the news coming from Africa, it appears Arsenal have completed their second summer signing in highly rated Under 17 world cup winner Samuel Chukwueze. According to the reports, the player has agreed personal terms with Arsenal after the Gunners agreed to pay him £7,000 a week. The player alongside his Nigeria youth international team mate Kelechi Nwakali were at London COlney and the Emirates stadium in November 2015.
Both players were accompanied by their agents and former Arsenal and Nigeria international Kanu. They were said to have been invited by Arsenal for more talks which was successful and both passed their medical. The deal was initially expected to be straight forward but while Kelechi Nwakali has since signed a deal with Arsenal, Chukwueze clubside diamond Academy have refused to sanction the sale of the player preferring to wait and see if there will be a bigger offer for the services of the player.
Though we don’t know if Arsenal have upped their bid but it appears both clubs have now reached an agreement and the player will officially be announced as an Arsenal player this week.
