Arsenal youngster Kelechi Nwakali has joined Porto on loan for the duration of the 2018/19 season and will take up a place in the Portuguese club's B team as he looks to further broaden his experience.
Former Under-17 World Cup winner Nwakali joined the Gunners in the summer of 2016 after a lengthy transfer saga full of premature 'confirmations'.
He was immediately loaned to Maastricht in the Dutch second tier, before staying in the Netherlands to spend a season on loan at VVV Venlo at a higher level in the Eredivisie.
"My main goal is to develop, improve my qualities and the other aspects I know I need to correct to grow in the way I play," the 20-year-old told Porto's official website.
"I think FC Porto is the right place to evolve as a player. There are good players, young people, and I think I'll grow up here," he added.
In a statement, Arsenal said: "We wish him all the best for his season with Porto."
