Arsenal enter the race to sign Nigerian international

Arsenal have entered the race to sign Nigerian international Samuel Chukwueze.

Chukwueze is an interesting young winger who came through Villarreal’s youth team and has already made 24 appearances for his country Nigeria at the age of 23.

The Nigerian international has spent most of his career playing on the right flank but has struggled to consistently score goals at the highest level.

This hasn’t stopped a number of clubs from showing interest in signing Chukwueke; According to transfers, Arsenal, Aston Villa and Everton are all in the running to secure his signing.

Arsenal don’t have many reinforcements for Bukayo Saka at right back, except for the inexperienced Marquinhos. Bringing in a player of Chukwueke’s caliber, a player who has a lot of experience at the highest level at a young age, could be a smart move, possibly allowing Marquinhos to be loaned out.

However, his lack of goals could be a concern for Mikel Arteta, who relies on players from all over the pitch to contribute, with Gabriel Jesus a natural non-goalscorer striker.
