Nigeria U20s skipper Kelechi Nwakali is targeting a spot in Arsenal’s first team next season, and has revealed that Nigerian fans who support the Gunners want to see him play at the Emirates Stadium.

The ex-Golden Eaglets talent was snapped up by Arsenal last summer but will spend the whole of this season on loan at Dutch second-tier club MVV Maastricht after failing to secure a work permit.

Manager Arsene Wenger will make a decision on the future of Nwakali in the summer and whether or not he remains in London will be determined to a large extent by the finalization of his paperwork.

“I’m not the one who will decide what happens but all I can do is work hard and let the boss see that. If Arsenal decide that next season they want me to play in Arsenal, no problem, ” Nwakali told goal.com.

“If they decide they want me to come back to London, it’s still no problem. They have to make their choice and I will respect it.”

The attacking midfielder added : “I think Nigeria have the most Arsenal fans in the world because of Kanu.

“I know they [the fans] are expecting to see me play in Emirates Stadium and I promise them I will work hard to get fulfil their expectations.”

The ASJ Academy product has played 24 matches as a professional since his arrival in the Netherlands.
