Nigerian starlet Kelechi Nwakali returns to Arsenal training


Talented Nigerian midfielder Kelechi Nwakali has returned to Arsenal  for pre-season training.

The 19-year-old impressed while on loan at Dutch club Maastricht last season and was at London Colney today, where he did gym work alongside Gabriel, who is recovering from injury. Yesterday he held talks with manager Arsene Wenger over his short-term future.

It isn’t currently clear what the next step will be for Nwakali but, given that he is yet to receive a work permit, another loan move appears likely.

Meanwhile, Jeff Reine-Adelaide participated in full training for the first time since recovering from injury. The Frenchman will hope to prove his fitness as he looks to be included in the travelling party for the club’s pre-season trip to Australia.

  1. Just pointing out, that’s not his Twitter. His Instagram @ is nwakali.k and his bio says it’s his only social media account. The photos with Gabriel and Wenger were taken from his Instagram.
