London club enter talks to sign Arsenal striker

Eddie Nketiah news

Nketiah back on Palace radar

Crystal Palace have reopened talks to sign Arsenal striker Eddie Nketiah, according to The Mirror.

The Gunners graduate was linked with the Eagles last summer, but a deal did not materialise between the clubs.

Palace were willing to pay £12 million for his services, but there was a stumbling block due to his wage demands.

Nketiah has now entered the final six months of his Gunners deal. It is claimed that the Eagles have revived their pursuit.

The club are set to terminate the loan deal of Jean-Philippe Mateta from Mainz, and this could pave the way for Nketiah's arrival.

He could be available for a cut-price deal. Mateta's departure would also them to meet his reported £60k-a-week demands.

Nketiah has also been approached by Borussia Monchengladbach, but he prefers to continue in the English top-flight.

The striker has started recent Cup games for the Gunners, but he won't extend his stay amid the lack of league minutes.
