There are very strong indications that Nigeria U20 star Samuel Chukwueze will head to Portuguese giants FC Porto after a proposed move to Arsenal may have all but collapsed.

Chukwueze was to have joined Arsenal along with Flying Eagles skipper Kelechi Nwakali, but it now seems the deal fell through.

And now the most likely destination for the former Nigeria U17 star forward is Porto.

“Chukwueze has an offer from Porto and the only thing holding this up is the Flying Eagles qualification for the U20 AFCON. Once this is achieved, he will be released to join the Portuguese club,” a top source told

It would be recalled that he was also at a point close to signing for top Austrian club Red Bull Salzburg.

Dashing right winger Chukwueze has been in blistering form the Flying Eagles.

He has scored braces in two straight test games involving the team this week.
