Player of the Week – Matchday 23

According to various reports, Kelechi Nwakali will join Eredivisie side VVV-Venlo on loan for the current season.

The 19-year-old Arsenal midfielder, who spent the recently completed campaign on loan with MVV Maastricht, has reportedly returned to Holland.

A Nigeria under 20 international, Nwakali joined Arsenal in 2016, but is yet to feature for Arsene Wenger's charges, and last season scored three times in 34 games for Maastricht for the Eerste Divisie side.

According to Voetbal International, Nwakali will fly to the Netherlands from Nigeria once he is awarded a work permit.

Utrecht and Basel were two other clubs said to be keen on the former Super Eaglets captain.
