Arsenal unhappy with the amount of game time Eddie Nketiah getting at Leeds United
Eddie Nketiah is an exciting Arsenal prospect and it is imperative he gets game time while on loan at Leeds United. The problem is that he simply is not getting anywhere near enough at Elland Road.
The England Under-21 star has featured in seven of 11 Championship games but not started a single one.
Seven sub appearances is not going to cut it. Arsenal needs Nketiah playing regularly and if Leeds cannot provide that then it is time to look for a club that will.
Bristol City, who are on level points with Leeds, have retained their interest in the 20-year-old. They would jump at the chance of signing the young striker.
Arsenal inserted a clause in the loan agreement with Leeds that enables the cancellation of the loan. This means that Nketiah is free to sign for the Robins on loan in January.
Bristol City tried desperately to sign the striker in the summer and was disappointed when they lost out to Leeds. Now, they have a second chance to land a player they believe will help their promotion push.
If Nketiah is unable to get more game time at Leeds then a move to Bristol City makes sense for everyone involved. Arsenal will be happy that their hot prospect is getting regular action. Bristol will be ecstatic they have landed one of the primary targets. Nketiah will be happy that he is playing football and Leeds, well, they probably don’t care.
