Arsenal could make £10m soon for one of their fringe players

Crystal Palace has a serious interest in Arsenal striker, Eddie Nketiah and the Eagles are expected to make a bid for him before this transfer window closes.

The England Under21 star hasn’t started a game for Arsenal this season because he is injured.

However, the Gunners have opened the door for him to leave after he failed to nail a regular spot on their team under Mikel Arteta.

He has 10 months left on his current Arsenal contract and has been offered a new one, but he hasn’t signed it yet.

The striker might feel leaving the Emirates is better for his career and Palace is looking to give him a new home.

The Eagles are being managed by former Arsenal star, Patrick Vieira and he is rebuilding the London club.

The Athletic says they have a strong interest in Nketiah and could make an offer for him before the window closes.

They have been tipped to bid around £10m for him though it is debatable if that fee will be enough to persuade Arsenal to sell.

He is another Arsenal academy product whom Mikel Arteta has failed to help thrive in the first team after Joe Willock, who has joined Newcastle United permanently.

    Unfortunately we have little power since this is Nketiah’s last year of his contract. Maybe we can get a few more mill out of the transfer. Another player that should not have even been allowed to get to his final year and should’ve been off last summer.

    £15 million with smart addons would be good business. Goals scored, appearances, England call up.. should be fine.

    In final year of his contract so can’t ask for much. He’s an OK player but not good enough for a club hoping to get back near the top. Hope he goes and good luck to him.

    So, will it be 10 mils up front or 5 mils now and the rest as assured payment of 1 mil for every 5 goals Eddie scores in CP colours, applicable up to 25 goals???

    (Can’t blame me for this, after reading about the true nature of the Mari deal our management made earlier.)

      like what you did there VasC…although I very much doubt that any other “professional” club would be quite so naïve at the negotiating table

    If we could get even £5 mill for the completely ineffective Nketiah we should grab it with glee!

    I think it will happen but I do not see Palace paying much above £7 mill at most. IN THIS COVID MARKET, AN OFFER OF £7 MILL WOULD BE AMAZING FOR US.

      his U-21 form keeps his price from falling that low.

        If Nheketia had stayed at Chelsea, how much would they sell him for?

    CP have offered 10M and according to the Athletic Arsenal are looking for a fee closer to 20M,this is ridiculous the guy is not signing a new contract and we will lose him for nothing in few months,I don’t understand some of this club’s decisions,they complain that we can’t get rid of players but refused the 13M offer for Xhaka,contrary to what many think he wouldn’t be missed on the pitch and I believe we already have the players to replace him for this season or we could have used the fees from both him and Willock to bring someone new in,about Bellerin loan with option to buy from Inter?at least he would have been off the wage bill and it’s not like he is going to play much is it?we have CC, Cedric even AMN in front of him, actually what’s the situation with AMN?,is he up for sale?is he willing to play at RB? it’s all a bit confusing especially when we don’t know what’s going on in the back!

    1. Ozziegunner says:

      Word I heard was the AMN is resigned to play at RB, but Arteta is yet yo play him. AMN’s form at RB during the FA Cup run was excellent and he made the England squad. Hopefully he knuckles down to specialising at RB/RWB and Arteta gives him opportunities.

  7. siamois says:

    Thanks Ozzie and I agree I’d love to see AMN back playing at RB,I understand MA might want to teach him a lesson but I don’t think he should wait too long before playing him again.
