The number of clubs interested in signing Eddie Nketiah is steadily growing.
Leeds United, West Ham United and Crystal Palace have been joined by Bayer Leverkusen and Borussia Monchengladbach in enquiring about his situation.
The 22-year old is in the final year of his contract at the Emirates and, although Mikel Arteta has spoken about wanting him to stay at the Emirates, there has been little progress on getting him to agree a new deal.
The record goal scorer at England under 21 level has largely been confined to appearances I the League Cup this season, scoring twice, against Wimbledon and Leeds.
If no resolution can be agreed, then the Gunners may be tempted to sell him in the January window whilst they can still command some sort of fee for him, although with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang set to miss more than a month at the AFCON, Nketiah may be needed as cover.
Andy is an exiled English football fan living in Cyprus. He loves all sports but football is his abiding passion, and he still has dreams every now and then about scoring the winning goal in a Wembley Cup Final, even though his playing days are long gone. He follows most major leagues, across Europe at least, and has a favoured team in each. When he’s not watching, listening, reading or downloading podcasts about football, he spend his time worrying about his beloved Arsenal.
