According to a source, Arsenal will once again try to convince striker Eddie Nketia to extend his stay beyond the summer.
The 22-year-old’s contract with the north London club expires in June and he has previously turned down several contract extensions offered by the club.
Nkita is demanding guarantees about his chances with the first team at the Emirates Stadium, especially if Arsenal chose to sign Gabriel Jesus from Manchester City, as was recently reported.
Despite his previous struggles to secure a regular position in Arsenal’s first-team squad, the forward has started four games in a row since leading the offensive line against Southampton in April.
Given his improved chances and form, the Daily Mail reports that the Arsenal leadership will make another push to persuade. bitmap To sign a new agreement to extend his term.
However, the story details how Nkitea is said to hold out until the end of the season to negotiate his future, with several teams reportedly interested in signing him on a free transfer, including Crystal Palace.
Having recently been included in Arsenal’s starting line-up, the England Under-21 international has made 17 appearances in the Premier League this season, scoring two goals, both of which came in Arsenal’s recent 4-2 win over Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.
