Celtic have reportedly signed Arsenal's budding talent
- Reports hold it that AFC's Armstrong Okoflex has joined Scottish champions
- The young prodigy is yet to sign a scholarship with Arsenal
- He wasn't seen at the Gunner's pre-season sessions
It is reported by the Scottish Sun that a welcome message for Okoflex was captured on the big screens at Parkhead on Friday morning, reading: ‘Armstrong Okoflex, welcome to Celtic Football Club’.
Furthermore, another picture came out on social media showing the teenager holding a Celtic strip with his surname on the back.

Born in Dublin, Okoflex has represented both Ireland and England at youth level, and he made seven appearances for Arsenal Under-18s last season; he is also eligible to represent Nigeria on the international stage.
Able to play on either flank, as well as in a central striking role, Okoflex was largely selected as a left winger last term, and he put in an eye-catching performance in Arsenal Under-18’s 5-1 defeat of West Ham, grabbing a goal and an assist from that position.
