Nwaneri started the 2022–23 season playing for Arsenal under-18s but such was his form that he was progressed up to the Arsenal under-21s.

He joined the Arsenal first team for training in September and made his first Arsenal Premier League match day squad on 18 September for the match against Brentford, and was then included among the match day substitutes for Arsenal.

Nwaneri has been described as a “number 10” who plays with flair but can also dribble well, and is versatile enough to play wide as well as central.

Nwaneri currently represents the England U-16s and has also made one cap with the U-17s but is eligible for Nigeria through his parents.
