Arsenal youngster Kelechi Nwakali who was sent on a loan move to VV Venlo at the start of the season could prematurely end his stay at the Eredivisie club having failed to get regular playing time.
According to his brother and agent Allwell, Arsenal are considering ending the player’s loan spell due to his lack of first-team action.
He further explained that Venlo’s coach prefer using the players who helped him avoid being relegated from the League last season at the expense of loaned players.
“Arsenal decided to bring him out from VVV Venlo because the coach was busy playing the players that came from relegation with him leaving players like Kelechi and some other loan players on the bench, ” Allwell confirmed.
While speaking to allnigeriasoccer over his brother’s situation, Allwell believes Arsenal are not happy seeing him on the bench and they are doing everything possible to loan him to a club where he will be guaranteed much playing time before the end of the season.
”Arsenal never wanted him to be on the bench because they have their plans for him.” he said
According to allnigeriasoccer, Porto are reportedly monitoring the player’s situation and they are willing to reach an agreement with the North London club for a loan move for the 19-year-old Nigeria international playmaker. They also reports that the Portuguese club are considering buying him outrightly should he impress during his loan spell with the club.
”FC Porto of Portugal are interested and even wanted an option to buy but they are discussing with Arsenal now. Arsenal are not interested for such opinion because they need Kelechi soon in the main team.” he said.
Arsenal will be relieved to see that Mesut Ozil remains with the club after lots of transfer speculations linking him with Barcelona, Manchester United and Juventus. The German playmaker refused to extend his contract which will expire in the summer but he is likely to play for the Gunners beyond January.
