Arsenal are set to miss out on Nigeria Under17 world cup star Samuel Chukwueze, according to reports.
The Gunners have been linked with a move to sign the U17 starlet since last year and it was thought that Arsenal already had a deal in place to bring the midfielder to the Emirates.
However, there is a shocking development regarding the player’s future and FC Porto are close to completing a deal for the 17 year old.
Chukwueze was to join his national U17 teammate Kelechi Nwakali at the Emirates this summer but it seems the player would now be heading to Portugal after the player’s academy and Arsenal could not reach an agreement.
“Chukwueze has an offer from Porto and the only thing holding this up is the Flying Eagles qualification for the U20 AFCON. Once this is achieved, he will be released to join the Portuguese club,” a top source told AfricanFootball.com.
Chukwueze was a star performer in the last under 17 world cup that was held in Chile and scored three goals for his country as they marched on to lift the trophy.
Wenger had been hoping to bring young talented players to the Emirates this summer but the French man is set to miss out on this talented right winger.
