Arsenal Handed Huge Blow As 2nd January Transfer Has Been Delayed

Arsene Wenger is reportedly keen on bolstering his side in the January transfer window for the second half of the 2015/2016 season.

Arsenal have been left frustrated with reports that the deal to bring under 17 world cup winning pair Kelechi Nwakali and Samuel Chukwueze has hit a snag as both players are yet to decide about signing for the Gunners.

The paper claims the general manager of Diamond Football Academy, who own the players’ economic rights, Prince Apugo, revealed that the pair have not yet made up their minds on their future.

The Nigerian starlets were widely expected to be in London this week after The Sun had earlier revealed that both players were due to fly into London this week to sign youth deals with a view of signing professional contracts when they turn 18.

Arsene Wenger would have to act quickly in order to convince the youngsters that their futures lie at the Emirates. Midfielder Nwakali who was crowned the most valuable Player of the tournament has already had trials with Arsenal rivals Manchester City.

The Citizens hold a slight edge as the player’s elder brother Chidiebere Nwakali already plies his trade at the Etihad.
