Aston Villa fans have taken to Twitter to give their reaction to speculation linking the club with Arsenal striker Eddie Nketiah.
Nketiah is back at Arsenal after being recalled from his loan spell at Leeds United in the Championship.
The 20-year-old striker joined Leeds on a season-long loan deal from the Gunners in the summer of 2019.
The youngster was able to play just 500 minutes in the Championship for the Whites this season, scoring three goals in the process, and scored two goals in two EFL Cup ties, according to WhoScored.
According to The Bristol Post, Villa are among the clubs interested in signing Nketiah on loan from Arsenal in the January transfer window.
The Villans need to sign a striker this month due to the season-ending injury to Wesley.
Dean Smith’s side need a proven goalscorer, while Nketiah is only 20 years of age and could not get into the Leeds team ahead of Patrick Bamford.
Villa fans have taken to Twitter to give their reaction to speculation regarding Nketiah.

I'd take Benteke back in a heartbeat, if it meant we were also bringing in another quality striker also.— Talk Of The Trinity (@TalkTrinity) January 10, 2020
Piatek is a pipe dream I feel at this moment.
Nketiah could be quality but we need proven #PremierLeague exp.
Who do we bring in #AVFC #AstonVilla fans?

Bristol City are favourites to sign Arsenal’s Eddie Nketiah but Aston Villa and Norwich are interested [Bristol Live]— Total Villa (@Total_Villa) January 10, 2020
Not the goalscorer we need and was recalled from Leeds because he couldn’t get past Patrick Bamford.
I’d much rather give Keinan Davis the game time #avfc pic.twitter.com/wXzCfgeTqR

We need two strikers this window so I'd take Nketiah on loan as long as we get another, more-experienced striker as well. #AVFC pic.twitter.com/EvWdJCxxUD
Definitely no. Couldn't get a game at Leeds.— Trevor Adams (@TJAdams1976) January 11, 2020
Not good enough to be the main striker— Daniel Willars(@daniel_willars) January 11, 2020
Not good enough— Rob nurser (@RobNurser) January 11, 2020
No be pointless— matthew hemus (@matthemus13) January 11, 2020
No, we need a top quality proven striker that’s actually been playing and is on form for his current team.— Villain (@Villain1982) January 11, 2020
We have been linked with so many has beens or potential when we are in desperate need of proven quality.
I appreciate it’s difficult but we have little choice.#avfc #utv
Not on your life. Scored 3 in the championship and ended up warming the bench at Leeds. Nowhere near premier league quality. Really poor signing if it happens. Davis is better.— Total Villan (@totalvillan) January 11, 2020
