Nigeria wonderkid Kelechi Iheanacho is being watched by Arsenal. The Daily Mail says Arsenal are monitoring Nigeria wonderkid Iheanacho after his four-goal haul against Mexico in the FIFA Under-17 World Cup. Gunners chief scout Steve Rowley is out in the United Arab Emirates watching the tournament and is known to be impressed by the midfielder.
Iheanacho, 17, shot to the top of the scoring charts in the competition with a brilliant display against the CONCACEF champions in their opening group game.
After the haul he told Fifa.com: "I've scored four goals in a game many times, but only in the streets with my friends. But never in an international match."
