Arsenal struggling to keep young striker

Arsenal are struggling to keep young striker Khayon Edwards at the club.

The 18-year old has already scored 14 goals this season in youth football, but, with only six months left on hs contract, he is stalling on a new deal.

There are a host of clubs tracking his situation, including Chelsea, Leeds, Southampton, and Newcastle, whilst there is also reported interest from several teams in the Bundesliga.

And the problem the Gunners fae is convincing Edwards that there isa  path to first-team football, especially with the traffic jam ahead of him.

In the summer, they persuaded highly rated Flo Balogun to sign a new deal at the club, but he has made only one first team appearance so far, and is likely to go on loan in January to aid his development.

Meanwhile, they are still trying to persuade Eddie Nketiah to extend his stay in North London, another man who is out of contract at the end of the season, and who is also demanding to play regular first-team football.
