Arsenal goalkeeper Arthur Okonkwo has linked up with Austrian side, Sturm Graz for the remainder of the season.

Okonkwo was recently recalled from his loan spell at League Two side Crewe Alexandria.

The 21-year-old made 26 appearances for Crewe Alexandria and kept 10 clean sheets.

The young goalie wore the captain’s armband for their FA Cup second-round defeat to Barnsley in November.

The former England U-18 international has risen through the youth ranks at Arsenal, but he is yet to make his competitive first-team debut for Mikel Arteta’s side.

Okonkwo has made the bench for Arsenal in the Premier League and Europa League, and he was given his non-competitive debut in a 2-1 friendly loss to Hibernian in July 2021.

    Okonkwo, you are destined for greatness with the Super Eagles. To call a spade a spade, you are far better than other goalkeepers of the Super Eagles. Play for Nigeria and your career will grow higher.

    Heaven bless Okonkwo and all deserving Super Eagles goalkeepers.

     
    • Okonkwo is developing faster than I thought…..he should be spoken to now before Southgate renders him useless internationally.

        Thumbs up Brotherman. Okonkwo is going to be a bit for the Super Eagles. We should invite him to play for Nigeria.

      Igna, Okonkwo could certainly assist us with our goalkeeping issues. He will be a good addition to the SE squad. I alsol think Uzoho can be useful as well. His recent performance against Man United makes me optimistic.

    Strick the iron when it is hot. Okonkwo is a born goalkeeper. Take him in now and Nigeria will be happy it did.
