Arsenal ace told he has to leave and become the main man at another club

Eddie Nketiah has been urged to leave Arsenal for a new club where he can play more regularly.

The Englishman has struggled to play for the Gunners recently and looks set to leave either in the January transfer window or when his deal expires in the summer.

He has failed to meet up with Mikel Arteta’s demands and the Spaniard is now looking to sign another striker for the club.

Nketiah is also unwilling to stay as he would hardly play and former Premier League striker, Noel Whelan has urged him to leave the Emirates.

Whelan thinks Nketiah is at a stage of his career that he needs to play more often as the leading striker at a club.

After struggling to break into the Leeds and Arsenal team, Whelan thinks he has to be ready to fight for his spot at his next club.

He insists managers will want to see some fight and Nketiah has to stop running away from the competition for a place.

“He’s got to go,” he told Football Insider.

“He’s made it plainly clear that he doesn’t want to be there.

“He won’t get enough game time, even though they might lose [Alexandre] Lacazette.

“He is at a stage of his career now where he needs to be the main man playing up front, 90 minutes every game.

“We had that issue when he wasn’t getting minutes at Leeds and he didn’t want to stay – at some point he’s got to stop running and fight for his place.

“He’s had two great clubs now, and he could have earned a move to Leeds after his loan before – but you’ve got to fight for that.

“Managers want to see some fight. He needs to think very carefully about his next move because there will always be competition to keep your place.”

  1. What he actually needs is a loan move to an epl club.
    Currently watching the Women’s UCL game and Barca been dominating so far. They ain’t giving our girls the space to use the ball.
    This could be a long night

  2. Nketiah is just not anywhere good enough or powerful enough. He should leave, for his sake and for ours!

    1. Eddie Nketiah is Tap-in Box 18 Merchant!
      Almost like Javier Hernandez (Chicharito) of Man Utd back then!!

      If I were Arsenal’s Manager, Would keep him as a Late SuperSub!🤔🙂

  3. Probably seems daft but my overriding feeling about Nketiah (and Willock)is that both come across too smiley. Too nice. Too often. Both appear to lack the grrr! factor. Just an observation and it’s why I think there is a mentality problem. Slapping the backs of your opponents after a loss with a grin bugs me. I never look at Jamie Vardy and think that he is too nice.
    Being a top player is about more than being talented alone.
