Young Nigerian winger, Xavier Amaechi has signed his first professional contract at Arsenal, AOIFootball.com reports.
Amaechi’s signing was announced on Arsenal’s official website on Friday with a picture of him and Arsene Wenger while putting pen to paper.
The statement on Arsenal’s website reads: “Talented winger, Xavier Amaechi has signed his first professional contract with the club.
“Xavier, who turned 17 today, has featured for both our under-23s and under-18s this season.
“He has been at the club since the age of 12, having joined us in August 2013.”
The Nigerian young star was earlier this week listed among the 10 hottest prospects to watch out in 2018 in the English League.
He was in imperious form last month when he scored a brace for the Gunners in their 6-0 thrashing of Tottenham.
