Newcastle United: Magpies eyeing Eddie Nketiah

Newcastle United: Magpies eyeing Eddie Nketiah -Newcastle United News

Newcastle United are reportedly now eyeing up a move for Eddie Nketiah this summer.

The Lowdown: Out of contract

The 22-year-old is out of contract in the summer and Arsenal have reportedly now made their final offer in order to try and convince him to remain at the Emirates Stadium.

Dubbed a player with an ‘incredible work-rate’, ‘pace’ and a ‘smell for goals’ by Gunners boss Mikel Arteta (Sportskeeda), the striker scored five goals in his last seven games in the Premier League, helping his team to secure five wins in the process (Transfermarkt).

The Latest: Newcastle lurking for Nketiah

Taking to Twitter, Luke Edwards has revealed that Newcastle are now watching Nketiah’s situation ‘closely’, along with Crystal Palace.

Addressing the Arsenal man’s future, The Telegraph journalist outlined: “#nufc are also watching this situation closely and the player is good friends with Joe Willock.”

The Verdict: No-brainer

It is a no-brainer for Newcastle to sign Nketiah on a free transfer, especially given the fact that he is English (therefore contributing towards homegrown quota), in a rich vein of form and only 22 years of age.

He could be a great squad option to supplement both Callum Wilson and Chris Wood in attack, and if it did not work out at St James’ Park for whatever reason, the Magpies could still sell him on for a profit.

Nonetheless, with his friend and former Arsenal team-mate Willock on Tyneside, Nketiah should be able to settle in fairly comfortably should he end up making the move to the northeast.
