In 2015 when Nigeria's Under 17 team won the FIFA World Cup, Kelechi Nwakali was the captain of the side and he performed wonderfully well in the championship.

But ever since then, the 22-year-old former Arsenal man has not played any competitive football for the Super Eagles which makes him available for any other nation.

Interestingly, the likes of Samuel Chukwueze and Victor Osimhen who were his teammates in the Under 17 have been playing for the Super Eagles.

According to the report on Complete Sports also cited on Vanguard, Allwell who is Kelechi's elder brother and agent claimed that some foreign nations have approached the 22-year-old.
