The official announcement has not yet arrived, despite claims we would have it last week, but everyone seems agreed – Kelechi Nwakali is an Arsenal player.
Away with the Nigeria u20 team, the 18-year-old midfielder is believed to have signed a five-year deal with Arsenal.
Nigeria won the game against Burundi, 2-1, thanks to this strike from Kelechi and they will now play Sudan in the final round of qualifying for CAF U-20 Cup of Nations that will take place next year.

Thanks very much to Toby for the heads up. If you spot anything you think we should cover, be it news, interviews or videos etc, or have any rumours that you’d like us to dig into so that Arsenal fans can get the whole picture, not just the select snippets that are today’s soundbites, simply drop us a tweet on Twitter like Toby did and we’ll happily follow up.
