Nigeria’s Kelechi Nwakali will officially join FC Porto’s main team for their pre-season training on Wednesday after impressing with the B team on Tuesday, can exclusively confirm.

Nwakali joined Porto on-loan from Arsenal last week but was made available to both the A and B teams ahead of the 2018/2019 Portuguese league season.

Having trained with the reserve team on Tuesday, the Super Eagles’ hopeful told exclusively that he will officially join the main team for training on Wednesday morning.

The 20-year-old attacking-midfielder joined Arsenal in 2016 before two separate loan stints at Maastricht and VVV Venlo.
