Arsenal signs 19yrs old Nigerian footballer.

Published

Premier League side Arsenal have completed the signing of 19-year-old midfielder Tim Akinola who was recently released by another English club Huddersfield.

Tim Akinola is so lucky to the level that Arsenal failed to give him a trial despite being a 19-year-old player as they signed him straight away. According to the report on UK Mirror, Arsenal chiefs were impressed with the analysis of Tim Akinola’s games so far which made them to sign him. Akinola who is eligible to play for both Nigeria and England only got into the academy system with Mansfield aged 16 before moving to Lincoln City in 2018/19. He was named on the bench by Danny Cowley in the Checkatrade Trophy and featured in the FA Youth Cup before a loan spell at Lincoln United in the eighth tier. If Tim should impress Mikel Arteta during the pre-season training, then he might get the chance to start with Arsenal next season in the Premier League.

Arsenal will be playing in the Europa League next season thanks to their brilliant win over Chelsea in the FA Cup which gave the Gunners the ticket to Europe.

Ajax records their biggest win in Eredivisie history.

Ajax recorded the biggest victory in the history of the Eredivisie with a 13-0 thrashing of VVV Venlo as they reclaimed top spot above rivals PSV.

It was the biggest winning margin in Dutch topflight history, surpassing Ajax’s own 12-1 win over Vitesse in May 1972. Lassina Traore, 19, scored five goals as veteran Dutch striker Klaas Jan Huntelaar scored a brace in the whitewash. The Amsterdam giants were 4-0 up in the first half with goals from midfielder Jurgen Ekkelenkamp, Traore’s brace, and former Southampton star Dusan Tadic also got his name on the scoresheet. But the defending champions came out smoking in the second half scoring nine goals to further humiliate their opponents. After Christiaan Kum’s sending off in the 52nd minute, things went from bad to worse for VVV as Ajax scored five goals in 11 minutes.

Traore completed his hat-trick before setting up Brazilian star Antony in the 55th minute. Jurgen Ekkelenkamp grabbed his brace two minutes later before Daley Blind made it 8-0. Lassina Traore added his fourth before Jan Huntelaar made it 10-0 from a spot-kick. The former Real Madrid man made it 11-0 in the 76th minute.

Lisandro Martinez and Traore scored the last two goals of the match as the Dutch giants bounced back from their midweek Champions League defeat to Liverpool.
