Borussia Mönchengladbach has apparently cast an eye on Arsenal attacker Eddie Nketiah when looking for reinforcements.
According to Daily Mail Gladbach should get involved in poker for the 22-year-old, who will be free in the summer. But Arsenal’s league rivals Crystal Palace are said to be vying for Nketiah’s services.
The Gunners have not given up hope of a contract extension. Most recently, head coach Mikel Arteta launched a charm offensive. “It’s my fault he didn’t play more,” declared Arteta after the Gunners’ 4-2 win over Chelsea on Wednesday, in which Nketiah scored twice. “He showed me through this performance how wrong I was about it.”
Nketiah joined city rivals Arsenal in 2015 from Chelsea youth squad. After a six-month loan to Leeds United in the 2019/20 season, he has been playing for the Gunners again since early 2020.
In the current season he was not considered at the beginning of the season, since the beginning of the year he has been a regular player – but often only as a joker. In his 15th league appearance this season, he scored his first two goals against Chelsea.
