Newcastle United: Magpies ‘chasing’ Eddie Nketiah

Newcastle United: Magpies ‘chasing’ Eddie Nketiah -Newcastle United News

Newcastle United are reportedly ‘chasing’ Eddie Nketiah ahead of a potential move in the summer.

The Lowdown: On form

The 22-year-old is a man on form, having scored four goals in his last five Premier League games, earning a starting place for Arsenal ahead of club captain Alex Lacazette in the process (Transfermarkt).

He is out of contract at the Emirates Stadium in the summer and can therefore leave as a free agent once the season ends.

The Latest: Newcastle ‘chasing’

Taking to Twitter, transfer expert Toby Cudworth – who contributes to the Talking Transfers podcast – has revealed that Newcastle are now among a number of clubs in the top flight who are ‘chasing’ Nketiah this summer, as it is ‘increasingly unlikely’ that the striker will stay in north London.

The 90min reporter outlined: “It’s increasingly unlikely Eddie Nketiah will stay at Arsenal – #WHUFC, #NUFC, #EFC and #CPFC all chasing. Liverpool and Chelsea also monitoring situation – 22 y/o could provide attractive squad depth option.”

Should Newcastle sign Nketiah?





The Verdict: No-brainer

To get a player of Nketiah’s quality and potential on a free transfer is surely a no-brainer for the Tyneside club.

Hailed as a player who has an ‘incredible work-rate’, ‘pace’ and a ‘smell for goals’ by his manager Mikel Arteta (Sportskeeda), the striker would offer a great squad option for Eddie Howe, given that Callum Wilson has suffered from injuries this season.

Only the biggest Newcastle fan will get 100% on this transfer quiz, test your friends and family! First up, who was Craig Bellamy sold to?

He is just 22 years of age, and given that he is English as well, he should provide a nice sell-on value should it not work out at St James’ Park.

Given his current form, though, there is no reason why Nketiah would not be a success at the Magpies next term if he swaps north London for the northeast of England.
