2nd Arsenal striker for sale wanted by 3 Premier League clubs

Arlo Gibbons


According to The Mirror, three Premier League clubs are interested in signing Arsenal striker Eddie Nketiah. This could be a result of Arsenal‘s need to raise money for transfers and clear space on their wage bill. Just a year ago, Nketiah signed a new contract with Arsenal that would keep him at the club until 2027. He made 39 appearances for the Gunners, scoring nine goals and assisting three.

However, less than half of those appearances were as a starter, and he only started games in the Premier League when Gabriel Jesus was injured. Arsenal‘s recent signing of Kai Havertz could also impact Nketiah’s position in the team. There is uncertainty about where Havertz will fit in Mikel Arteta’s squad, with some reports suggesting he might play in midfield and others hinting at a role in the front three. If Havertz is indeed a forward, Nketiah will have competition for playing time from the likes of Gabriel Jesus, Gabriel Martinelli, Bukayo Saka, Leandro Trossard, Reiss Nelson, Folarin Balogun, Marquinhos, and Nicolas Pepe, who are all returning from loans.

With only three spots in the front line and a surplus of players, it is expected that Arsenal will need to offload some forwards. However, the players that will be sold will largely depend on the offers that come in. If Nketiah can be sold for a significant fee, it is likely that Arsenal will consider it.

In summary, three Premier League clubs are interested in signing Eddie Nketiah from Arsenal. Despite signing a new contract last year, Nketiah could be moved on to raise funds for transfers and reduce the club’s wage bill. The competition for a place in Arsenal‘s front line has increased with the signing of Kai Havertz, and Nketiah may need to be sold to make room for other forwards. The final decision will depend on the offers that Arsenal receives for the player.
