Arsenal officially announced on the club’s website for Arsenal and Nigeria striker Kelechi Nwakali has completed a season loan move to FC Porto.

The Portuguese giants have an option to make the deal permanent in 12 months’ time.

An Official statement reads: “My main goal is to develop and evolve as a player, to improve my qualities and the other aspects that I know I need to correct to grow in the way I play. I think FC Porto is the right place to evolve as a player.

“I know Porto very well, because one of my idols always in football played here: Deco. He was a player that I loved to watch and I hope one day being able to meet him and tell him the importance he had in my desire to be a football player,” Nwakali said.

Nwakali arrived in North London to much fanfare in 2016, having impressed at the U-17 World Cup the previous year.

However the 20-year-old struggled to make a major impact either in the youth setup or out on loan, where he spent time with Dutch clubs VVV-Venlo and MVV Maastricht last season.
