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.
According to reports, Nigeria youngster Samuel Chukwueze is reportedly on his way to London to pen a deal with the Gunners.
According to his agent Ifeanyi Igwenjoku, he revealed the 1999-born star pulled out of an agreement with Red Bull Salzburg to finally sign with Arsenal.
“I wish Chukwueze the best,” Igwenjoku told Complete Sports Nigeria. “He is a Nigerian but the big question is: ‘would he develop faster at Arsenal than at SV Salzburg.’
“There was an agreement to take him to Austria. The family were very excited but surprisingly my European partners who worked so hard at ensuring he went to SV Salzburg told me that they had been informed of Arsenal’s interest in the boy and that he wasn’t going to Salzburg anymore.
“Nigerian players must realise that there is more to money and big name clubs.
“As much as Arsenal is a big European club, he may not play as many games as can there. Surely, he would have had more playing time at Salzburg. His development is equally important.”
