Norwich City's Charlie Gilmour tips Eddie Nketiah to score plenty of goals for Leeds United

General views of Elland Road before the Sky Bet Championship match between Leeds United and Aston Villa at Elland Road on December 03, 2016 in Leeds, England.

One of Eddie Nketiah's former Arsenal teammates has tipped him to score plenty of goals for Leeds United.

Nketiah completed a season-long loan move to Leeds on Thursday - despite having interest from Bristol City and some Premier League clubs, according to the Independent.

The 20-year-old found the net regularly for Arsenal's youth teams, leading to nine first-team appearances.


And Charlie Gilmour, who left the Gunners to join Norwich City earlier in the summer transfer window, has predicted that Nketiah's form will continue with Leeds in the Championship.

Currently on loan at Telstar in the Netherlands, Gilmour tweeted in response to Nketiah:

The Independent cited the relationship between the Arsenal manager, Unai Emery, and Leeds' director of football, Victor Orta, who were colleagues at Sevilla, as a deciding factor in Nketiah's move to Elland Road.

And the capture of Nketiah now looks an even bigger coup for Marcelo Bielsa's side, assuming the newspaper's latest update is accurate.

How will the Arsenal youngster fare at Leeds United?
