Nwakali eyes successful run at Porto


Former Golden Eaglets star, Kelechi Nwakali  said his aim in the 2019 season will be to make an impact in the Portuguese league with Porto FC.

The Nigeria international will feature for the reserve team of the Blue and Whites after sealing a season-long loan deal from Arsenal.

The 20-year-old who spent last season on loan to MVV Maastricht has seen his move as a challenge and hopes to make a good use of it.

“I feel great joining FC Porto because it is a new challenge for me and it will give me a chance to play regularly which will help my improvement as a footballer,” Nwakali told Goal.

“It is also an opportunity for me to prove myself and I look forward to becoming an influential player in the Portuguese league.

“As a young player, I must endeavour to adapt to any situation I find myself in my bid to become a world-class player.

“FC Porto are a competitive team who always feature in the Uefa Champions League and also encourage youngsters to flourish.”

Nwakali will play in Portugal with Porto B side in the second division, and should he impress, Porto reserve the option to sign him permanently.
