Kanu Nwankwo Reunite With Former Boss Arsene Wenger.

Nigeria Football Legend Nwankwo Kanu witnessed the signing of Nigerian duo Kelechi Nwakali and Samuel Chukwueze, also in attendance is Asenal manager Arsene Wenger and CEO Ivan Gazidis.

The teenage stars were also pictured with Gunners legend Nwankwo Kanu.

Mirror Sport revealed earlier this month that Arsenal had beaten off competition from Manchester City and Bayern Munich for the pair from the Diamond Football Academy in Umuahia, Nigeria.


Arsenal scouted them during last year’s Under-17s World Cup in Chile when Nwakali, 17, was the star of the tournament as he was captain and voted Player of the Tournament. Chukwueze, 16, scored three goals and three assists.

When asked whether he expects it to be done before Monday’s deadline, Wenger said: “Yes. The (talks) are progressing well.”

And now the duo appear to have signed after being snapped with the Frenchman.
