Premier League outfit wants to sign 21-year-old Arsenal man

Brighton is interested in a move for Arsenal striker Eddie Nketiah and he could join them.

The Englishman will face more competition for a place in the first team now that Mikel Arteta has promoted Folarin Balogun to the senior squad.

This will be an important summer for Nketiah and Arsenal’s reluctance to start contract talks with him seems to suggest that they are preparing to allow him to leave.

Several mid to lower table Premier League teams will benefit from having him in their squads and the Englishman has now caught the attention of Graham Potter’s side.

The latest Brighton news via Sun Sports says the Seagulls are looking to become a top-ten side after spending much of the last season outside that group.

Brighton plays some of the more entertaining football in the Premier League, but they struggle to score goals.

They believe that Nketiah, who is a record-breaking goal-scorer in the England Under21 team, can help them with that.

This transfer could also see both clubs exchange players because Arsenal is also very interested in a move for Yves Bissouma. 

The Malian has been seen as the best midfield partner to Thomas Partey and he would be a fine addition to the Arsenal squad.

    nketiah had a bright start to the season but phaseout since xmas. He was our topscorer at point but a poacher is not what we need now. Maybe haaland anyone

      Haaland would cost about 180- 200m

      Dortmund wants 120m

      Agent and his dad wants 20m each plus player sign on fee

      Only in Fifa21 we can easily sign Haaland, Mbappe and more in one transfer window

    If Richard Garlick can negotiate Yves Bissouma for Eddie Nketia plus cash with Brighton & Hove Albion, it will be a good result for the Arsenal. How good will depend on the amount of cash; £10-20 million would be excellent.

    I really think Eddie needs to move on. He might make it in the PL but right now he doesn’t look good enough. Even though he is skilled and clever, his slight frame makes it hard for him to hold the ball from CBs and for a goalscorer, he’s never once looked capable of scoring when given the chance to shoot, either 1-on-1 or from the edge of the box.
    If he can improve either his physical presence or his finishing ability, he could yet be a very good striker, but right now I don’t think he warrants a place in this squad. Sad to say. I hope he proves me wrong in time, but I think that should occur at another club.
