Arsenal winger of Nigerian descent Xavier Amaechi has completed a move to German Bundesliga side Hamburg
Amaechi put pen to paper on a four-year deal with the German second division club.
Hamburg will pay a fee in excess of 2.5m euros (£2.25m), plus several million in performance-related add-ons, while Arsenal have a sell-on clause but no buy-back option.
The 18-year-old England youth international, who passed his medical on Saturday will wear the number 17 shirt at the Volksparkstadion.
The Nigerian was the target of big European clubs like Bayern Munich and Barcelona.
The handwriting was on the wall for Amaechi who was not included in the Gunners’ pre season trip to United States where they played friendlies against Bayern Munich, Fiorentina and Real Madrid.
