According to The Sun on Sunday (print edition, page 63, January 19, 2020), Eddie Nketiah shocked Nottingham Forest and Sheffield Wednesday when he turned up for talks with the Championship clubs.

It has been reported by the British tabloid that Arsenal striker Nketiah was on the radar of Championship trio Forest, Wednesday and Bristol City.

The three clubs reportedly wanted to sign the striker on loan from the Gunners in the January transfer window, with the 20-year-old having been recalled early from his loan spell at Leeds United after struggling to get much playing time under Marcelo Bielsa at Elland Road.

 

However, according to the report, the England Under-21 international striker shocked Forest, Wednesday and City by turning up for talks with family, friends and a new agent.

Arsenal stay

According to The Daily Mail, Arsenal have decided that they will not send Nketiah out on loan for the rest of the season.

The striker will be part of the Gunners’ first team for the coming weeks and months, and it will be interesting to see how the youngster does, and how much he progresses and develops as a footballer.
