Eddie Nketiah news

Nketiah on the move this summer

Arsenal are prepared to part ways with Eddie Nketiah this summer amid interest from West Ham United and Watford.

The 22-year-old struggled for playing time last season, and he was restricted to just 1,300 minutes of first-team action.

He still impressed with six goals to his name, and could be heading for a permanent exit during the transfer window.

According to Football.London, Nketiah is attracting plenty of interest and Bayer Leverkusen are one of the contenders.

However, the marksman would prefer to stay in England. West Ham and Watford are reportedly planning bids.

The Hammers could have the edge over the Hornets after qualifying for next season's Europa League group stage.

The Gunners want around £20m for the England youth international, who has entered the final year of his contract.

The club have a replacement within their ranks with Folarin Balogun having already been promoted to the first-team squad.

Balogun is highly rated by the hierarchy. He was on the radar of 15 clubs before he signed a new long-term deal with the Gunners.
