Arsenal’s Wonder-Kid Arthur Okonkwo has hinted that he’s ready to switch his allegiance to the Super Eagles of Nigeria if only they turn their attention to him.
The 21-year-old who’s currently on loan at Crewe, had represented England a junior level; but won’t think twice if Nigeria calls through.
“We had that discussion and he(Okonkwo) said if he gets a call up he won’t say no. He’s in the second phase of his young career and that is getting regular run of games,” he said.
“The past two seasons he learnt the ropes by watching on as third choice at Arsenal. Now he’s experiencing how it feels in real time,” a representative of Okonkwo told owngoal Nigeria.
Meanwhile, the Super Eagles of Nigeria are on the lookout for goalkeepers who will man their goalpost since Maduka Okoye and Francis Uzoho are not consistent in their forms.
