Wrexham Boss Keen To Keep Nigerian-Born Goalkeeper

Wrexham manager Phil Parkinson has reiterated the club’s desire to keep goalkeeper Arthur Okonkwo.

The Arsenal shot stopper spent last season on loan at Wrexham.

The 22-year-old played a crucial role in the club’s promotion to League One.

Okonkwo featured in 40 games across all competitions.

The goalie’s contract with Arsenal will expire at the end of next month.

Wrexham are desperate to sign him on a permanent deal but could face stiff competition from Premier League and Sky Bet Championship clubs.

Parkinson claimed they will do their best to keep Okonkwo at the club.

“Obviously we’re keen to keep Arthur and we’re working on that,” Parkinson told BBC Sport Wales.

“It could take time but there’s one thing for sure, we’ll give it everything that we’ve got to keep Arthur at the club.”
