Nwakali is a product of the Diamond Football Academy and is considered to be one of the top rising talents of Nigerian football.
Arsenal have been relatively quiet in the transfer market so far this summer, with Granit Xhaka the headline addition in north London.
Alongside the Switzerland international, youngsters Rob Holding and Takuma Asano have been snapped up, but with Per Mertesacker set for a lengthy period on the sidelines through injury a new centre-back appears to be on the agenda for Arsene Wenger.
