Arsenal eyeing to offload Eddie Nketiah in order to acquire new striker

Arsenal, riding high after a recent win against Brighton, are contemplating potential transfers in the January window. With focus on bolstering their attacking options, reports link the Gunners with a search for a new striker. Ivan Toney and Dusan Vlahovic have emerged as key targets for Arsenal, indicating their pursuit for an attacking reinforcement.

In a strategic move, Football Transfers reports that Arsenal might consider offloading homegrown talent Eddie Nketiah. This will facilitate the acquisition of either Vlahovic, Toney, or Benjamin Sesko. Crystal Palace have shown interest in Nketiah, and Arsenal might be willing to explore this possibility.

Nketiah’s recent contribution against Brighton, assisting Kai Havertz’s crucial goal, showcased his impact off the bench. However, there remains a prevailing sentiment among supporters that Nketiah might not possess the caliber to lead Arsenal’s attack in the long run. Speculations suggest his potential sale could generate around £30 million. Thus, aiding Arsenal in their pursuit of high-priced targets like Vlahovic and Toney. They are currently valued at £70 million and £60 million respectively.

Doubts still linger over Nketiah’s future at Arsenal

Despite Nketiah’s sporadic contributions, doubts persist regarding his ability to evolve into a world-class striker, a standard Arsenal seeks to fulfill their current aspirations. The team, while benefiting from Gabriel Jesus’s efforts, acknowledges the need for a prolific striker to enhance their goal-scoring capabilities. A potential move to Crystal Palace could offer Nketiah the opportunity to become a pivotal figure, securing regular playing time and spearheading a team eager to improve their goal-scoring prowess.

Arsenal, under Mikel Arteta’s management, recognizes the promising position they hold this season. Thus, the acquisition of a striker in the January window could significantly influence their campaign. Aiming to strengthen their attacking front, Arsenal strategizes to balance potential departures, like Nketiah’s, with acquisitions that can elevate their attacking prowess and elevate their competitive standing in domestic and European competitions.
