Eddie Nketiah seemingly confirms Arsenal exit and reveals he is open to Ghana switch


 

Just days after soon-to-be out of contract forward Alexandre Lacazette all but confirmed his Arsenal exit and spoke of his Champions League ambitions, fellow striker Eddie Nketiah has also seemingly confirmed his impending departure.

Both forwards are out of contract this summer, and it has been widely assumed that they will leave the club as the Gunners look to continue their club rebuild, but it has now seemingly been all-but-confirmed.

Between them, they have contributed to 5 goals this season, two of which came from the penalty spot, and both have been victims of anger from Arsenal fans at their lack of goalscoring, perceived as a key reason that Mikel Arteta's side now look likely to miss out on 4th spot and Champions League football this season after three straight losses.

'There has been offers of a new contract but my aim is to play football and to play regularly, that’s my ambition and that’s what I hope to do', he told the podcast.

Open to Ghana switch?

Meanwhile, despite being the record England U21 goalscorer, Nketiah is yet to be capped at senior level for the Three Lions, and qualifies to play for Ghana through his family should he wish to make that switch.

The Black Stars have qualified for the World Cup finals in Qatar too, drawn in a group with Uruguay, Portugal and South Korea, and Nketiah confirmed that he is open to the idea of switching allegiance ahead of the tournament.

'Of course it is a possibility. I'm open to both, playing for Ghana and playing for England as well. It's always good to have the opportunity to potentially do that', he continued.

By the sounds of it, Nketiah could be lining out alongside Thomas Partey for Ghana come the World Cup.
