Nigerian Goalkeeper, Arthur Okonkwo calls up to train with Arsenal’s first team ahead of this evening’s Premier League meeting with Newcastle United at the Emirates Stadium. The Gunners held their final training session on Sunday, with Okonkwo in attendance.

The 17-year-old has been registered for the second half of the Premier League, his chances of making his professional debut against the Magpies are slim as Bernd Leno and Petr Cech are ahead of him in the pecking order of goalkeepers.

He was among the three Nigerian teenagers that travelled with the Gunners first team to Dubai during the international break, the others being Xavier Amaechi and James Olayinka.
