Reports are out claiming that Samuel Chukwueze’s proposed transfer to Arsenal has reportedly hit a snag.
According to AllNigeriaSoccer, the 16-year-old striker’s move to London is in major doubt due to the compensation fee the Diamond Academy are demanding from the Gunners.
Chukwueze emerged on the radar of Arsenal after starring for Nigeria at the FIFA U17 World Cup in Chile last year in which the young Super Eagles were successful.
He was set to follow fellow Nigerian starlet Kelechi Nwakali to the Emirates Stadium, after he announced he had signed a five-year deal, but the move is on the brink of falling over as there has not yet been an agreement on a fee.
Juventus are also believed to be interested in Chukwueze who is one of his country’s top youngsters expected to move to Europe this summer.
