Arsenal are ready to listen to offers for striker Eddie Nketiah in January.
Although the Gunners are currently top of the Premier League, scoring goals remains a problem for them, and they do not have anybody on their books capable currently of scoring 20 or more gaols in a season.
Main centre-forward Gabriel Jesus recently admitted that scoring goals is not the strongest part of his game.
Nketiah has scored five times this season when deputising for Jesus, and earned his first England ap in October. Yet his stock at the club has fallen in recent week, and with the Gunners linked with strikers with a different profile, Nketiah’s time at the club may be up.
And, with the club needing to stay within Financial Fair Play regulations, there is a need to sell before they can buy.
There are other clubs in the Premier League, though, for whom Nketiah would be a regular starter, so there should be no shortage of suitors for the 24 year old.
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.
