(Images) Arsene Wenger pictured with Nigerian starlets as they prepare for Arsenal deal

It appears that the double deal bringing Kelechi Nwakali and Samuel Chukwueze to Arsenal is all but confirmed after a picture emerged of Arsene Wenger meeting with his new charges.

The youngsters have been linked with a move to the Emirates all throughout the January window, with reports surfacing this week that the pair have flown into London for talks over finalising their respective moves.

The pair made a name for themselves last summer when they guided Nigeria to glory in the U-17 World Cup in Chile.

A negotiation process was held up by visa issues, but it is believed that a deal will be struck in the next 48 hours to seal their arrivals in north London, and the pair were seen meeting with Wenger and club legend Nwankwo Kanu at the club’s training ground.
