The main summer transfer target for Wrexham has spoken out about his plans.

After winning 6-0 over Forest Green Rovers earlier this month to secure back-to-back promotions, the Red Dragons are getting ready for a season in League One.

The first transaction Wrexham hopes to finalize is the permanent signing of goalkeeper Arthur Okonkwo, who spent the whole of their League Two season on loan from Arsenal.

The 22-year-old’s North London contract is about to expire, and he is reportedly being pursued by a number of clubs.

Furthermore, Okonkwo has already spoken out about his future plans.

“I haven’t looked too much into things at the moment,” Okonkwo stated in an interview with the Athletic. But I will, shortly.

It involves evaluating all of my options to determine which is best for me. They will always hold a special place in my heart, and I have adored my time at Wrexham.

Earlier this month, Wrexham manager Phil Parkinson expressed his desire to retain Okonkwo for the duration of the current campaign in an interview with the BBC.

“Obviously, we’re keen to keep Arthur, and we’re working on that,” Parkinson stated.

“We’ll do everything in our power to keep Arthur at the club, even though it might take some time.”

Parkinson continued, “Myself and the staff will be sitting down and looking at the squad and looking at the players available and targeting the players we feel can help us next year.” This is the general idea for the transfer window.

“That involves staying in contact with agents, examining players who have been cut loose, examining players whose contracts are up in a year, and examining players who teams are trying to offload.”

“It’s a whole raft of players who could be available – players from Premiership clubs who could be available on loan. But the list changes – it’s a daily moving scenario really.”
