Nigeria U20 forward Samuel Chukwueze is expected to fly out of the country to agree a deal with Portuguese club FC Porto after a failed move to Arsenal.
“Chukwueze is flying out to Portugal tonight accompanied by the owner of Diamond Academy to agree a contract with Porto,” a source informed.
Dazzling right winger Chukwueze is expected to agree a pre-contract with Porto before he signs a professional deal when he turns 18 next May.
Several Nigeria youngsters are currently “parked” at Porto.
Earlier this year, Chukwueze underwent trials at Arsenal but a deal was not agreed.
The forward, who was third leading scorer at last year’s FIFA U17 World Cup in Chile with three goals, was also a target for top French Ligue 1 club AS Monaco.
