Eddie Nketiah will leave Arsenal at the end of this season and he could play in the German top-flight next.
The striker has struggled to play in the Gunners’ first team regularly and has rejected the club’s offer of a contract extension.
This means in the summer, he can choose who he stars for next season, and he might head to the Bundesliga.
Bild claims Borussia Monchengladbach is rebuilding their team at the end of this campaign and they will spend the summer adding new players to the squad.
Nketiah is one of their targets and they hope they can convince him to join them on a free transfer.
Just Arsenal Opinion
Nketiah has been one of the finest graduates from our academy in recent times and it would have been very romantic to watch him succeed in our first team.
However, the striker has failed to transfer his prolific goal-scoring form to senior men’s football.
This is why Mikel Arteta doesn’t trust him with enough minutes and it also means he is a gamble for any club that signs him.
However, he was in good form in the Carabao Cup for us this season and that might be a sign that he is improving.
I believe shopping involves a purchaser and a buyer.
I think he may find himself backup at the German club also. He has never pushed on from being a poacher during his time at Arsenal.
Never improved his first touch, technique, or even the ability to create his own shot.
“Romantic”? Such a dreadful misuse of our language. We are speaking about a footballer making the grade – not that he will atArsenal level of course!
Romance is something completely separate and very different . There is indeed romance in our game but not in this instance or context. Its use here is entirely inappropriate.
I fail to see why any English speaker, Ad Martin in this case, can so completely misunderstand how to use a basic English word and thus use it so wrongly.
The summer will take care of itself one way or another with Eddie but we might need him for games this season, games that have become important because of our good run of League results since December, so hopefully he is a better player than this article suggests
I think he is myself and wouldn’t rule out him staying with Arsenal and being one of 4 strikers, with two new signings and Balogun, at the start of next season
I think more than Nketiah staying, Laca has a better probability of getting a contract extension. It would have been great had Nketiah succeeded with our first team since he is from our very own Academy but I am sure he will have a future in some other club.
Maybe gunnerforlife, they both might stay or they both might go but I think it is going to make for difficult enough shopping in the summer for two new strikers never mind three or even four if Balogun doesn’t come back improved to the level required and we also need to keep an eye on home grown players within our recruitment
Laca has had a decent Arsenal career and has played a significant part in our recent good run to get us into CL contention this season but he simply doesn’t score enough goals, I think he will want to move on and to me it feels like the right time for that to happen, he is not the future here, Eddie might still be and because of his zero League starts this season it won’t be easy for him/his Agent to find a good opportunity for him now
If he stays on a new contract we might be in a position to cash in on him at a later date if he doesn’t break through at Arsenal, or even if he does
I understand he would prefer to stay but wants to play more, I also understand Arteta would like him to stay but doesn’t play him more, I would like him to stay but that means absolutely nothing!
