Clueless Nwakali Linked With Swiss Cup Champions


Three-time Swiss Cup champions Luzern is weighing up a move for Super Eagles midfielder Kelechi Nwakali who is currently without a club.

The Imo state – born midfielder rose to the limelight at the 2015 Under-17 World Cup with his brilliant performances in the run-up to Nigeria’s victory. However, the 24-year-old has struggled to get a firm grip on his career since then.

After Nwakali was released from Arsenal in 2019, he joined Huesca. He struggled to secure a shirt at the club until last season when he strung up a good run of games.

Unfortunately, it all came apart for the Nigeria international on his return from the last Africa Cup of Nations, as his deal was terminated after a dispute with the Spanish club.

The midfielder has been without a club since April, but that could change soon as transfer market reports that Luzern is looking to sign him this summer.

If the deal materialises, it would be Nwakali’s first spell in Switzerland. He would look to helping them to a better finish next season, as they had to scrape through to avoid relegation last season.
