Young Arsenal talents Jeff Reine-Adelaide, Chris Willock, Stephy Mavididi and Kaylen Hinds returned from the u17 World Cup disappointed.

One young man who wasn’t so disappointed by the tournament in Chile was Nigeria captain Kelechi Nwakali, who helped his country on the way to winning the entire tournament. With three goals and three assists, Nwakali won the Golden Ball for being the tournament’s best player.

Understandably, he’s now wanted by a number of clubs. His older brother is already playing for Manchester City, where the midfielder has had a trial, but he has called out Arsenal as he club he would love to play for above all others.

“I will love to play for Arsenal,” said the Nigerian. “They are their Premier League club I will like to play for them because they play the best football in the world.”

Well, I like him already. Chelsea and Liverpool are both already interested in signing him, but if Arsenal go in it seems like he’ll plump for the Gunners.

Older brother Chidiebere, who plays for Manchester City, says there’s no pressure for his brother to sign him.

“It is a personal decision and so he will be the one to take it as this could well define his career.”

Perhaps the 17-year-old will be in red and white before too long.
