Arsenal's move for Kelechi Nwakali close to completion, says brother

Kelechi Nwakali's brother has said that the talented teenager is close to joining Arsenal but is still waiting to be granted a visa.

Nwakali, 17, led Nigeria to under-17 World Cup glory last year and sources told ESPN FC earlier this month that the Gunners were set to complete a deal for him and compatriot Samuel Chukwueze.

Nwakali's brother, Allwell, told Nigerian website Complete Sports that the move is still on track and should be completed shortly.

"I don't think there's anything to fear about the deal not going on as planned," he is quoted as saying. "Given the type of visa we applied for, we hope it will be available within the shortest possible time.

"Don't forget, there are always ways such transactions that are done, so I assure you we'll get there. There are no threats whatsoever on Kelechi's Arsenal move, this I assure you. We've no worries at all as everything is moving according to plans."

Nwakali has another brother, Chidiebere, who is part of Manchester City's academy.

But Allwell Nwakali said the younger brother chose to join Arsenal because of their track record in developing teenage talent.

"Arsenal are known to have a good programme for young players," he said. "They develop young stars and enhance their careers."
