Nigerian attacking midfielder secures historic deal with Arsenal

Posted : 06 March 2024

Ethan Nwaneri, an England U17 international with Nigerian heritage, is on the verge of securing a groundbreaking deal with Premier League giants Arsenal, as reported recently. Football Insider suggests that Nwaneri is set to sign a record-breaking contract with Arsenal, following a substantial bid from Manchester City.

The Hale End Academy graduate is confirmed to formalize his entry into professional football by signing his first professional contract with Arsenal when he turns seventeen on March 21, 2024. After months of speculation about his future, the attacking midfielder opted to sign a scholarship before the 2023-2024 season, and this scholarship is set to be converted into a professional deal in just sixteen days.

Despite interest from other top clubs such as Manchester City and Chelsea, Arsenal successfully secured Nwaneri's commitment to a new deal. Notably, Nwaneri currently holds the distinction of being the youngest player in the history of English top-flight football, making his senior debut in a Premier League clash against Brentford at the age of 15 years and 181 days in September 2022.

Since this historic debut, the Anglo-Nigerian wonderkid has been called up to the first team on six additional occasions, including three appearances in the UEFA Champions League. With his impending professional contract, Nwaneri is set to become the highest-paid academy player in Arsenal's storied history.

In the current season, Nwaneri has showcased his talent by contributing thirteen goals and three assists in just thirteen matches for Arsenal's youth teams, solidifying his reputation as a promising young talent.
