Kelechi Nwakali’s agent has confirmed he’s completed his move to Arsenal after signing a five-year contract with the club.
Nwakali flew to London last month to thrash out a deal with the Gunners after a £3million fee was agreed with Diamond Football Academy.
‘Kelechi has signed a five-year deal with Arsenal,’ he told Sports Day.
‘I won’t be able to mention the exact transfer fee but it is above £2m.’
A talented midfielder in the mould of Patrick Vieira, Nwakali will begin his career this summer when he turns 18.
Meanwhile, Kelechi is back in Nigeria and was seen in his thanksgiving service last Sunday at St. Marks Anglican Ezibodo in Imo State. He confirmed the Arsenal deal.
