Highly-rated starlet Samuel Chukwueze is said to be undergoing a medical with Arsenal this week as he closes in on completing his move to the club, Nigerian publication Complete Nigeria Sports reports.
The Gunners have been keen on the teenager’s signature ever since he impressed at the Under-17 World Cup last year and have been in negotiations to bring him to the Emirates for some time now.
Arsenal have already signed his international colleague Kelechi Nwakali, and now reports are claiming that Chukwueze is set to follow in his footsteps and link up with him at the Emirates.
The report claims that Chukwueze is putting the finishing touches on a medical before penning a four-year contract with the club.
He is said to have already been granted a work permit by the UK home office, and Arsenal will now pay a small compensation fee to Diamond Football Academy in order to release him from his contract there.
