According to reports gathered by owngoalnigeria.com Diamond Academy prospect Samuel Chukwueze who helped Nigeria win the U-17 WYC will still move to Arsenal.

We gathered his move will in the coming months be finalised laying to bed speculations that his move to the Gunners is close to collapse.

“It’s not true he will go back to Arsenal in two or three months time to complete his move, we forget he is not yet 18 he won’t even be 17 until May so why the rush” a source close to the player’s camp told owngoalnigeria.com.

“His case has to be more complex than Kelechi Nwakali as he is way younger unlike Nwakali who will soon be 18, I can tell you that as at yesterday the move is still on”.

Chukwueze was one of the star for Nigeria at the U-17 World cup held in Chile where he scored three times from the seven games he played for Nigeria.
