Chelsea in hunt for wonderkid Kelechi Nwakali
Agent Klay Ekeocha has confirmed that Chelsea have made contact with him over potentially signing Nigerian wonderkid Kelechi Nwakali.
The versatile African midfielder was recently named as the Most Valuable Player at the Under-17 World Cup and recently admitted that he would love to play for Arsenal.
Despite this, the 17-year-old’s representative has confirmed that Jose Mourinho’s men are thoroughly in the chase to snare the teenager.
“We are in contact with Chelsea, Udinese and Olympiacos,” the agent said according to Metro.
“Udinese made a ridiculous offer of €800,000 for the Most Valuable Player of the FIFA Under 17 World Cup.
“We are working hard for the player, his family and academy. Manchester City and West Ham are no longer involved because of work permit issues. We got in touch with Arsenal and there’s no feedback yet.”
