Nwakali Set To Join Spanish Club Huesca On Two-Year Deal From Arsenal

Nigerian midfielder Kelechi Nwakali is set to complete a two-year deal to Spanish Segunda B side, SD Huesca from Premier League club, Arsenal, reports Completesports.com.

Nwakali linked up with Arsenal in 2016, but has never played an official game for the North London club.

He spent time on loan at MVV Maastricht, VVV Venlo and Porto B, but didn’t do enough to be handed a first team chance with the Gunners.

According to a report in Spanish online news outlet, AS.com, the young midfielder will be allowed to to join Huesca without a transfer fee, but Arsenal will include a sell- on clause in the deal.

Nwakali came into limelight after leading the Nigeria U-17 side, the Golden Eaglets, to win the cadet World Cup in 2015 in Chile.

The 21-year-old won the Golden Ball Award as the best player of the competition.

    It is good to hear you have finally sorted out your club issues. Even though your colleagues like Osimen and Chukwueze are already making headlines and fast becoming top class players. We know you have the qualities that can take you to the top. The Race is not to the swift. Just keep working hard and trusting God. Your time of your celebration will surely come.

     
  • Great to hear that finally the U17 trio of 2015 are now able to take charge of their footballing careers. Osimhen and Chukwueze landed on their feet last season and got fantastic clubs that fit after three years of trying. Chukwueze negotiating with Arsenal, porto before finnaly ending at Villareal. Osimhen spending two barren years at Wolfsburg before lighting up the Belgian league with Charleroi.

    Things have not been rosy for the nwakali brothers, chidi starting at Man City, going to Aberdeen and Poland before settling with kalmarr FC in Sweden where he has not featured since he signed.

    Kelechi now going to Huesca who were recently relegated from la Liga and are looking for a quick return. I am hoping that this club is a good fit for him as well so that he can get plenty of good football under his belt, solidify his place with the Nigeria under 23s and have an excellent outing at the Tokyo Olympic games.

    This time next year, hopefully he’ll be knocking at the door of the Super Eagles. One step at a time, though, there is a path finally opening. Fingers crossed
