The agent of one of Arsene Wenger’s promising recruits from last summer has revealed the time is near for discussions over his future at the club.

Kelechi Nwakali joined the Gunners in July last year after a string of impressive displays at the U-17 World Cup.

However, an issue with work permit meant he was rather sent out on loan to MVV Maastricht ahead of the 2016/17 season.

And after completing his stint with the Dutch second division side, Nwakali’s agent has revealed the 18-year-old is now ready for talks with Wenger over what is next.

“We’ll be going into fresh talks with Wenger to know what the future holds for Nwakali.” his agent Olumide Olowu said

“I hope the young man will return to Arsenal and continue to build his future there,” Olowu told Complete Sports in an interview.

The forward managed to score one goal in 22 appearances for MVV Maastricht last season.
