2015 FIFA U-17 World Cup Most Valuable Player, Kelechi Nwakali, has revealed he signed a five year contract for English Premier League side, Arsenal.
According to mirror.co.uk, Nwakali disclosed that he has signed a five-year contract with the London-based team.
“I just came back from London, I have signed a five-year contract with Arsenal.
"So many teams were interested in me but it has been my dream at a tender age to play for Arsenal," Nwakali revealed.
The deal agreed between Arsenal and Diamond Football Academy for the highly-rated 17-year-old, reportedly, is believed to be £3million.
Following Nwakali's impressive performance at last year's U-17 World Cup in Chile, clubs like Manchester City and Bayern Munich showed interest in the box-to-box midfielder.
But Nwakali had always wanted to play for Arsenal. The youngster revealed he supported Arsenal as a child.
He has already had a tour of the Gunners’ facilities in London and has since flown back to Nigeria and will officially join them when he turns 18 in June.Watch The Premier League Live!! with EXPRESSVPN the #1 Trusted Name in VPN
