Arsenal goalkeeper attracting interest from England & Germany

An Arsenal shot-stopper is attracting interest from both England and Germany.


As per Goal, interest is mounting in Arsenal goalkeeper Arthur Okonkwo, following his impressive loan spell with Sturm Graz.

Okonkwo, 21, has been on Arsenal’s books since he was eight years of age.

The young keeper was a regular feature for their youth sides but has never made a senior appearance during his time at the Emirates.

2022/23 saw to keeper spend the first half of the season on loan in League Two with Crewe where he kept 10 clean sheets in 26 outings.

Okonkwo was then loaned out to Austrian side Sturm Graz in the second half of the campaign.

The 21-year-old has made 17 appearances for Graz and kept six clean sheets. He was also instrumental in them capturing the Austrian cup. Graz beat RB Salzburg in the quarter-final on penalties with Okonkwo between the sticks. The Arsenal keeper was then able to keep a clean sheet as his side won the final 2-0.

But with Aaron Ramsdale very much cemented as Arsenal’s no.1, Okonkwo looks set to go in search of more regular football this summer, with Goal reporting that a number of clubs in England and Germany are interested in him.

No potential fee is mentioned in the report but Okonkwo is entering the final year of his Arsenal deal, suggesting it will not take too much to snap him up.
