“When you see Eddie train in the way he trains, he doesn’t even need to play, you know that you have a player there that is going to help you and he’s done that,” Mikel Arteta said as quoted by the club’s official website.

“Look at his numbers with the amount of games that he’s played, it’s terrific.”

Nketiah scored for Arsenal in their 5-1 home win over Everton on the final day of the 2021/22 English Premier League.

He put up a Man of the Match performance to help he Gunners cruise to a comfortable victory however, Mikel Arteta’s side missed out on Champions League qualification for a sixth successive season.

Several clubs are interested in signing Nketiah but it is understood that Liverpool and West Ham are in pole position to pounce for him.

The forward made 21 league appearances for Arsenal this season, scored five goals and provided one assist in the process.
