Arsenal Nigerian teen midfielder Kelechi Nwakali will once again head out on another loan deal away after the expiration of his present deal with Dutch second division side MVV Maastricht, Owngoalnigeria.com understands.
Nwakali has won several man of the match award for his performances for his present team who are chasing promotion, but he still hasn’t done enough to convince the club hierarchy about his readiness to make the step up to the main team.
” If there’s one youngster who has been pencilled down for more first team action next season Donyell Malen has to be the one not Nwakali. As a matter of fact about 8 players are currently ahead of the Nigerian”, Arsenal youth team expert Simon John told Owngoalnigeria.com.
” Nwakali will go out on loan, am cocksure about that but Malen will be given a chance to push for a spot in the first team, before probably heading out on loan towards the end of next season.
” Malen has trained regularly with the first team and from those who have watched their session, he has linked up well with the senior players at the club.
” He has some areas in his game he needs to work on but overall he has improved tremendously, especially in front of goal. He is a sure to be included in the first team pre season activities”.
