Kevin Campbell gives his Nketiah prediction for next season

Former Arsenal man, Kevin Campbell believes the Gunners will sign two more attackers in the next transfer window and he doesn’t expect Eddie Nketiah to become the club’s first choice.

Nketiah will sign a contract extension at the Emirates after nearly leaving the club as a free agent.

One reason he wanted out was because of a lack of playing time. But he enjoyed a run in the team towards the end of the season and that may have made him change his mind.

Mikel Arteta has probably promised him more game time before signing a new deal, but Campbell insists he would not be Arsenal’s first-choice striker in 2022/2023.

He tells Football Insider: “It is their money, they will do what they feel is right. One thing I do know is that Nketiah is not being offered a new deal to be a regular starter next season.

“That is why I think two more could come in. He has not signed it yet though.”

Just Arsenal Opinion

Nketiah has been in great form in the last few weeks, and the attacker remains an important member of our first team.

However, he doesn’t have the experience and quality to take us to the next level.

We need a better striker to deliver that, but Nketiah has enough potential to develop into a world-class talent.

  1. Eddie is barely average yet he has value.
    1. He is quota.
    2. He came for free.
    3. He does score goals in the lower tier cup competition’s.
    4. He actually out scored 50m Laca 60m Auba 72m Pepe in the Premier League last season.
    5. By retaining him he will lower the price of any big ticket incoming striker by 10/15mill.
    6. He helps promote the belief that Arsenal gives young players a chance.
    7. He is low ego and fits Artetas do as your told requirements.

  2. I pray KC’s correct with his assessment, but based on the rather mixed results whenever he’s tapped into his predictive powers, I wouldn’t hold your breath…I really don’t see this club splashing the kind of cash required to get 2 top-notch Strikers, especially after the Eddie’s unjustified raise…so if they do bring 2 in, it might be a quantity over quality gig, which would be a disaster…I would rather they target the best Striker available and then get it done, instead of having two half-assed options

  3. I don’t understand why your not prepared to give eddy the chance of regular football… this season is eddys make or break but your writing him off as a lost cause. Can’t you write about someone else’s team? When has nketiah been given a genuine chance at Arsenal? You say he scores against low level cup opposition but when that’s only time he getting starts you have to question your logic.. especially as he scored 5 in last 8 on par with Kane I believe… and that was against premier league opposition.. set ya pillar out tell us what the lads gotta do to shut you up? What qualifies you to shat chit about the lad anyway?

    1. It seems a shame that poor comments are being made in reference to a particularly patient and deserved academy graduate who has pretty much staked his claim to more playing time in the first team. His numbers give his a shout a chance.
