Arsenal legend Nwankwo Kanu is confident Kelechi Nwakali can make it with the Gunners.
Nwakali, who is Kanu’s nephew, is currently on-loan at Porto B.
“Very, very good player,” Kanu told Goal. “I hope you have seen him play, then you will know that he is good.
“He played for Nigeria before the World Cup, a friendly game against Atletico Madrid.
“He scored a fantastic goal, so he keeps playing and keeps progressing and keeps growing.
“I keep advising him. I hope one day they will open the door for him to come back to play for Arsenal.”
The 20-year-old joined the Gunners in the summer of 2016, before immediately joining MVV Maastricht on loan.
During his time in the Eerste Divisie, the Nigeria international made 34 appearances, scoring three times.
Last season Kelechi remained in Holland – stepping up to the Eredivisie with VVV Venlo – during which time he made 11 appearances and scored once.
