Brentford Greatly Admire Arsenal’s English Striker

Eddie Nketiah - Arsenal

Brentford are big admirers of English Striker Eddie Nketiah and have already asked about the Arsenal striker in the last few weeks.

Interests

One player in the Gunners lineup who seems to have a cloud over him coming into the January transfer window is Eddie Nketiah.
This season, the England international has outscored Gabriel Jesus in the Premier League. Mikel Arteta, though, seems eager to add another striker when the transfer window opens next month.
One of Arsenal’s main objectives for the window is Ivan Toney. And with that, it doesn’t seem like Nketiah will stay at the Emirates.
TEAMtalk claims that Brentford has already inquired about the 24-year-old. Arteta has turned down the request. Yet, in order to pay for their own window purchases. Arsenal could need to take offers on a few of its players.

English Striker Admired

Additionally, TEAMtalk reports Within the Bees hierarchy, Nketiah has enormous popularity.

Notably, the article also states that it is thought unlikely that Toney will be included in a swap transaction. However, it’s obvious that Arsenal wants Toney and needs to find a way to get things done.
It’s likely that many Arsenal supporters would want the team to move Nketiah in order to make room for Toney.

Arguably “underrated,” Nketiah has shown himself time and time again when Arsenal has needed him. However, it might be argued that he hasn’t quite reached the point where you could envision him eliminating Arteta’s chances of winning.

Nketiah will only be fueled by that view. And if he turned out to be successful, it would come as no surprise at all.

But Arsenal need to be ruthless if they are going to get themselves across the line this season, and remain there in subsequent years.

So if Brentford are prepared to make a significant offer for Nketiah next month, Arsenal should seriously consider letting him move on.
