Nketiah will be more than happy to leave Arsenal reckons former Premier League star

Former Premier League goalkeeper, Paddy Kenny says Eddie Nketiah will be happy to join West Ham as he continues to struggle for regular game time at Arsenal.

The England Under21 star started this campaign competing strongly with Alexandre Lacazette for the Arsenal striker position.

However, he has struggled for game time in recent months and looks set to leave the club in the summer.

Arsenal has an abundance of talents in their attack with Folarin Balogun also expected to sign a new deal.

Balogun has been in fine form for Arsenal’s youth teams and he looks set to replace Nketiah in the first-team squad.

With that in mind, the striker has been linked with a move away from Arsenal and one of the teams interested is West Ham.

The Hammers are flying high in the Premier League and looks set to gatecrash the top four party in an incredible campaign for David Moyes’ men.

Kenny thinks Nketiah would want to play for them because of how they are performing and the track record of Moyes with young players.

He told Football Insider correspondent Adam Williams: “You’d definitely rather play for West Ham than Arsenal at the moment.

“They lost at the weekend but they’re still in the race for Europe. But the way Arsenal are going, there’s no way they are going to get back into Europe. 

“As it stands, you’d be looking at West Ham if he’s wanting to push himself and play at the top level.

“Moyes is a big factor in that. He has always given youth a chance and he’s one of those managers who can turn players around.”

      Dont give him any credit ken, he is a sh*t house supreme. lol

      1. ken1945 says:

        Agreed – but this humiliation might just be the motivation for him to sell the club.

        NOW I can feel that we, the footballing family, might just have saved football as we know it.

          Thank goodness we avoided a catastrophe.
          We almost saw a situation where
          Premier league was awash with oil money and foreign billionaires owning clubs, foreign managers teams dominated by foreign players being paid obscene amounts of money playing turgid park the bus football in low scoring draws.
          Fans paying through the nose at games or online to watch the same top 8 teams in the European places the same top 8 playing in the Carabao Cup +FA Cup finals.
          We avoided the terrible possibility of the same top 8 teams who never get relegated while all the rest go through the relegation/promotion revolving door.
          Just as well we don’t have a super league favouring a select few.
          Now we can return to the true English game where all the players are English. All the clubs are owned by the Englush fans. All the managers are English . Everyone play for the love of the game hold 8am -5pm jobs and train twice a week at night
          and are rewarded with a pie and a beer after the game.
          Yes we have our game back.

            Sounds like you can’t wait

            The one little point your extremely “funny” post neglects to mention Wyoming, is that our pyramid of football within the English league will/has not been trashed by greedy billionaires, with no interest in the game… just the profits they can make.

          3. Reggie says:

            You still dont get it wyoming do you?

          4. Declan says:

            @Wyoming…..you’re a very funny guy……..NOT !!

    What an embarrassment for those clubs thinking they were joining a super league… Stan Kroenke thought he hit the jackpot with this one 😆 Kroenke out!

  4. SueP says:

    Good to know that us little Englanders could show how much our football across the leagues matters more than joining that stinking league with no competition or relegation

    The fallout will be immense at the top of the pile.

    1. Kev82 says:

      Indeed it will Sue 👍 it will be an interesting follow to see how this plays out amongst the top brass in the coming days/weeks.

      1. Reggie says:

        Remember they are hardened business men with skin thicker than elephants. We need to remind them we dont want their scum anymore. Even then i dont think they will get it.

  5. Atid says:

    I can now see light at the end of the cancerous tunnel.

    According to reports Kronke will actively look to sell the club after this. I wasn’t so against the Super League idea, in principle, however I just didn’t want Kronke to still be around. I haven’t been in the ground for many years now, I said I wouldn’t until he had gone.

  6. The-Real-Vieira-Lynn-4ever says:

    It will be interesting to see how things develop regarding Kroenke’s already contentious ownership situation…of course, it’s difficult to apply too much pressure on him with no fans in the stands and him rarely making public appearances in North London…that said, it would be wise on our collective parts to turn our attentions squarely in the direction of his immediate subordinates at the club, as that might be the only way to turn the screw…after all it’s clear that this had some sort of impact on the their Super League about-face

    it’s imperative that we hit while the irons hot, which if done correctly shouldn’t impair our on-field operations…the saddest part of our current predicament is that even if we find a way to force his hand, he would still walk away with a King’s ransom…ultimately I’m good with that if it means we can rid ourselves of this pox and finally hit the reset button

    Well, the feedback I’m getting from Australian friends is that so far the good guys have one. You can hear the Universe celebrating just like at the end of the first Star Wars trilogy. Can’t wait for the Everton game to see the reaction in real time however. I guess from here Arsenal will have to earn their elite status, the same for Eddie Nketien who has five or six opportunities to show that he has what it takes to make it in the English Premier League.

    1. Sue says:

      Kroenke out protest before the game.. I think the club thought it’d all die down after announcing their apology, feels like this is just the beginning and will be interesting to see how many gooners turn up. Going by the chav protest, quite a few I’d say!! 👍

    Regarding Nketiah …. if he wants to leave that is good news.
