Palace targets move for wantaway Arsenal man, talks have started

Crystal Palace wants to sign Arsenal striker, Eddie Nketiah, as they look to solve their goal-scoring problems.

The Eagles have hired Patrick Vieira as their latest manager and he faces refreshing a squad that is filled with old players.

He has to get results with them to keep his job and has seen his club struggle for goals in their latest matches.

A goalscorer is needed and they think Nketiah fits the profile of the striker that they need.

The Gunners have offered a new deal to Nketiah, but the striker isn’t convinced about signing.

The promotion of Folarin Balogun to the first team means he now has more competition for a place in the Gunners’ squad.

The Independent reports that Palace is looking to add him to their squad and they have already started talks with Arsenal.

Mikel Arteta has several other attacking options he can choose from and he would feel he wouldn’t miss the England Under-21 star.

At Palace, Nketiah will compete with the likes of Christian Benteke and Jordan Ayew for a starting spot, but he would likely still have more first-team opportunities with them than at Arsenal.

It will be interesting to see who signs Nketiah finally because Brighton also has an interest in him.

  1. Palace bid £10m but MA and Edu countered that with wanting £5 million. That would sound more like it.

    1. Too late I’m afraid.He ought to have been our priority signing, but now he may land up at Spurs to rub salt into our wounds.We cannot go into matches with only one central midfielder ,particularly when that player is a liability, like Zaka.

  2. Balogun and Odegaard might seem a good deal this season. I am not too sure about that. They might not live up to bidding or expectation that have heralded them. I see more of flashes and physicality him them that could peter out or wane with time.
    I predicted Saka was going to be a star in Urai Emery watch and it sounded ridiculous at the time. I see Eddie in the same. He is going to be a star player given the right atmosphere and belief in him.
