Highly-rated Arsenal Goalkeeper Arthur Okonkwo is representing Nigeria at international level if he is approached by the Nigeria Football Federation, reports Footballive.ng.
Okonkwo is eligible to turn out for Nigeria through his parents and can commit his international future to the three-time African champions as he has not played competitively for England’s senior side.
He is regarded as one of the top teenage goalkeepers in England, he has caps for the Young Lions at U15, U16, U17 and U18 level.
He has the needed qualities to play for Nigeria’s Olympic National Team and the Super Eagles.
Okonkwo is eager to play first-team football next season and would be loaned out if his request is approved by Arsenal.
