Chukuweze back at Porto

Nigeria youth sensation Samuel Chukwueze will return to FC Porto of Portugal start his career in earnest after initial hiccups.

EPL side, Arsenal were close to signing him but the move broke down due to disagreements over his actual valuation in terms of transfer fee.

Chukwueze will turn professional on the 22nd of May but he is eligible to be registered by the team for their UEFA youth league campaign, which is part of the reason why he is returning back to Portugal.

Chukwueze was one of the shining light for Nigeria at the 2015 U-18 World Youth Championships, which Nigeria won in Chile and he was also one of the few positives in the ill-fated attempts by the U-20s to qualify for next year Africa Youth Championships.
