Arsenal youngster Kelechi Nwakali joins Porto B on loan with option for permanent transfer

Arsenal youngster Kelechi Nwakali has joined Porto B on loan until the end of the season, with the Portuguese giants having an option to make the deal permanent in 12 months’ time.
.
Nigerian midfielder Nwakali, 20, arrived in north London to much fanfare in 2016 having been identified by the Gunners’ as one of the star players in the Super Eagles’ Under-17 World Cup winning side of the previous year.
.
However Nwakali struggled to make a major impact either in the youth setup or out on loan, where he spent time with Dutch clubs VVV-Venlo and MVV Maastricht last season.
.
He will now go to Porto’s reserve side, who play in the second tier of Portuguese football, but he has big hopes for his time as a Dragon.
.
Nwakali said: "My main goal is to develop and evolve as a player, to improve my qualities and the other aspects that I know I need to correct to grow in the way I play. I think FC Porto is the right place to evolve as a player.
.
“I know Porto very well, because one of my idols always in football played here: Deco. He was a player that I loved to watch and I hope one day being able to meet him and tell him the importance he had in my desire to be a football player.”
