Kelechi Nwakali posed for pictures with Arsene Wenger and Laurent Koscielny after finally completing his transfer to Arsenal this summer.

The midfielder was set to sign for the Gunners back in January but the deal was put on hold until he turned 18 on 5 June due to Fifa regulations.

Now, the 18-year-old appears to have confirmed that he will be an Arsenal player from next season with a post on his official Facebook page.

Nwakali shared the pictures above on his Facebook page and wrote: “New Life Begins @Arsenal.”

It is thought that Nwakali – who was also linked with Manchester City and Bayern Munich – will join up with the Arsenal Under-21 side ahead of next season.

Arsenal are believed to be on the lookout for a number of other new signings this summer as Wenger looks to revamp his squad ahead of next season.
