Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is planning a major title push this season and the boss is aware of the need to bring in only the best to achieve his target.
Arsenal would complete the signing of Nigerian youth international Kelechi Nwakali on Friday according to reports. The Youngster revealed according to Footballinsider247 that he would request for the shirt number worn by his hero Kanu when he signs for Arsenal on Monday.
Kanu Nwankwo wore the no 25 shirt while he was at Arsenal and that squad number currently belongs to Carl Jenkinson who is out on loan at West Ham United.
