Arsenal desperate to extend Eddie Nketiah’s contract

English Premier League side, Arsenal are desperate to extend Eddie Nketiah’s contract with several clubs interested in acquiring his services this summer.

Nketiah is out of contract in the summer and it is not clear if he will stay with Mikel Arteta’s side.

Six Premier clubs including West Ham United and Crystal Palace have expressed interest in signing him with the Hammers ready to take advantage of the 22-year-old’s contract stand-off with the Gunners.

The 22-year-old’s representatives have already held talks with Arsenal and another meeting is planned to see if they can find a way forward around how much game time he will get.

He scored twice in their 2-1 win over 10-man Leeds United in the English Premier League on Sunday, taking his goal tally to four in 18 league games this season.

Nketiah has started the last five games for the Gunners after previously struggling for minutes under Arteta.

The highly-rated forward scored twice against Chelsea, put up an incredible display in their wins over Manchester United and West Ham, and a starring role against Leeds.

Meanwhile, Arsenal have been linked with summer moves for Manchester City ’s Gabriel Jesus, Everton ’s Dominic Calvert-Lewin, Aston Villa’s Ollie Watkins and Benfica striker Darwin Nunez.
