According to Mputu’s South Africa-based manager Bajo Bujani, the TP Mazembe striker is expected back in Kinshasa today after what he termed as a ‘successful stint’ in England.
“Mputu completed his trials with Arsenal on Tuesday and is expected back in Congo today, unless something changes. We are still waiting for official word from Arsenal, however Arsene Wenger is said to have been impressed with the striker’s performance.
“We are keeping our fingers crossed that Mputu will realise his dream of playing in Europe and going to Arsenal will be a great move for the player to make his name in international football.
“African players have great reputation of shining at Arsenal and I believe under Wenger, Mputu can go down in history as being one of the best players to emerge from Africa.”
