The talented midfielder was once in the books of Premier League giants Arsenal.

He signed for the Gunners in the summer of 2016 but was farmed out on loan to Maastricht, Venlo and Porto B before his release in September 2019 without a first-team appearance to his name.

Nwakali was the star of the under-17 World Cup in 2015, leading his country to the title as their captain and leaving with the Golden Ball Award.

Back in May 2018, he was part of the Nigeria B team that gave Atletico Madrid stars a run for their money in a friendly 3-2 defeat, with the midfielder dictating the flow of the game and crowning his brilliant performance in the middle of the park with a worldie that left the brilliant Jan Oblak helpless.

    Am beginning to be scared with Watford patrolling Nigerian players always! Ighalo, Success, Dele-Bashiru, Ekong, Dennis, now after Nwakali… Ahhh! Lol!

    Leeds United, really good team. Hope this speculation is true and does he have the UK work permit now??

      I pray it turns out to be real(especially Leeds). How much i want this dude to be back in his real elements and fulfill his potentials.

        Nwakali is what the Super Eagles midfield needs. He is surely a deserving player.
