Arsenal Top Loanees : Kelechi Nwakali Rated Ahead Of Akpom, Senior England, Costa Rica, Japan InternationalsTop London based football website Squawka has ranked all the players Arsenal farmed out on loan during the 2016-2017 season, with Nigeria U20 international Kelechi Nwakali coming second.

The attacking midfielder or winger was rated ahead of Bournemouth's England star Jack Wilshere, Japan international Takuma Asano, Costa Rica World Cup star Joel Campbell and England U21 international Chuba Akpom.

Writing on Nwakali, Jeorge Bird explained why he picked Nwakali as the second most outstanding loanee, behind Roma goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny.

''There is much hype surrounding the Nigerian youth international and with good reason. ''

''Nwakali was a major success in the Dutch second tier with Maastricht as he dribbled past opponents with regularity and also showed some signs of improvement defensively.''

The 19-year-old Kelechi Nwakali suited up 33 times for Maastricht last season, and helped the club qualify for the promotion playoffs.
