Before joining the Nigerian national team for the postponed 2021 Africa Cup of Nations, he appeared in 19 league games in 2021-22.

Following an unsuccessful spell with Arsenal in England, Nwankali joined Huesca in 2019. He was named FIFA U-17 World Cup Player of the Tournament in Chile in 2015.

Arsenal moved the Nigerian to MVV Maastricht in the Dutch second division after he was unable to get into the first team.

Before being moved out of the Emirates Stadium for a move to Huesca, he played for VVV-Venlo and FC Porto B.

He played in just five games in his first season at the Estadio El Alcoraz as the Spaniards were promoted to the Spanish top flight.

Huesca was relegated to the second tier, and he was assigned to Alcorcon for the rest of the 2020-21 season.
