Nwakali was named the FIFA U-17 World Cup player of the tournament in Chile in 2015 after a resounding performance with Nigeria and had caught the attention of Arsenal.
Following his inability to break into Arsenal’s first team, the Gunners sent the Nigerian to Dutch second division side MVV Maastricht.
Nwakali enjoyed further spells at VVV-Venlo and FC Porto B before he was shipped out of the Emirates Stadium for a move to Huesca.
In his maiden season at the Estadio El Alcoraz, he featured in just five games as the Spaniards got promoted to the Spanish elite division.
Huesca’s demotion to the second-tier saw him sent to Alcorcon for the remainder of the 2020-21 campaign.
