Arsenal are closing in on the signing of Nigerian youth internationals Kelechi Nwakali and Samuel Chukwueze for a combined £3m, according to The Times.

The Premier League side, who dumped Sunderland out of the FA Cup over the weekend, are set to sign the young midfield duo ahead of the likes of Bayern Munich this month.

Nwakali, who is a Nigeria Under-17 international, is an attacking midfielder who starred at the Under-17 World Cup in Chile last year.

Meanwhile Chukwueze, who is also a Nigeria Under-17 international, is predominantly a right winger, although he can operate on both flanks.
