Arsenal fans are anxiously waiting for the official announcement of their first January signing but they will have to wait a little bit more. Arsene Wenger had stated Arsenal will be busy this transfer window, but so far, even the official news of signing Mohamed Elneny has been stalled for reasons unknown.
It was reported that Elneny has a work permit issue but the matter has been resolved. Therefore, the news might arrive after Arsenal has played their fixture against Liverpool today. It is almost halfway through the current transfer window, and while Arsenal has been reported to be interested in various players, no solid deals have happened as yet, except for one that is to be announced.
Kelechi Nwakali and Samuel Chukwueze are two players that are newly being associated with a move to Arsenal. The two Nigeria’s U-17 players fit right into Wenger’s philosophy of nurturing and developing players to their full potential.
Clubs like Manchester City and Bayern Munich both are said to be in the race for the youngsters but Arsenal is likely to steal them both.
