Samuel Chukwueze who was expected to be signed by English Premiership giant Arsenal alongside his Nigeria U-17 teammate Kelechi Nwakali is still details away from joining Arsenal.

Although owngoalnigeria.com failed to get any clear cut explanation from sources close to the player’s camp but we were made to understand disparity in valuation is partly responsible for the logjam.

His representatives want a deal close to what Nwakali has at the moment with Arsenal but the gunners are not offering anything close to what they paid for the MVP of the last U-17 WYC.

However the player has been in London for close to a month now and feelers from contact in the camp of his agency suggest he might still seal a deal in the coming days.

Chukwueze is left footed, fast and daring making his teammate to nickname him Arjen Robben and he finished as third top scorer at the 2016 WYC.
