Ex-Arsenal Winger Amaechi Snubbed VfB Stuttgart For Hamburg
German 2 Bundesliga side Hamburg completed the permanent signing of Nigerian winger Xavier Amaechi four days ago.

Allnigeriasoccer.com can exclusively report that another German second tier club in the shape of VfB Stuttgart were in contention to sign the former Arsenal wonderkid prior to his switch to Hamburg.

Amaechi and his advisers including his dad and agent believed it was best for the winger to move to Hamburg instead of VfB Stuttgart.

During negotiations, Hamburg informed the player and his camp that they were signing him to play for their first team and promised him playing time in the 2019-2020 season.

Assuming he remained at Arsenal, his progress would have been stunted as he was behind Alex Iwobi, Bukayo Saka, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Reiss Nelson in manager Unai Emery's pecking order of wingers.

The 18-year-old Amaechi could make his professional debut for Hamburg next Monday when they travel to
N├╝rnberg.
