Arsenal have fended off competition from Manchester City to sign Nigerian youngsters Kelechi Nwakali and Samuel Chukwueze, according to reports.
The Gunners have reportedly signed the Nigerian youngsters for a handsome budget of £6m.
Nwakli was named player of the tournament at the FIFA U17 World Cup, while Chukwueze scored three goals and provided three assists in the tournament.
Various top European clubs including Manchester City and Chelsea have enquired about the duo, but Arsene Wenger has managed to beat his Premier League rivals to sign them for a fee in the region of £6m.
Kelechi’s older brother Chidiebere currently plays for City’s academy after joining for £3m almost three years ago.
It’s expected that Nwakali, Chukwueze and Egypt international Mohamed Elneny will be the only signings made by Arsenal in the January transfer window.
