Eddie Nketiah’s departure from Arsenal had been a near-certainty for the better part of this calendar year, but that situation has changed in the recent weeks.

The 22-year-old youngster has seemingly sprung out of nowhere to become a significant contributor for Arsenal. He has gone a long way in a short amount of time.

Nketiah, a graduate of the Hale End academy, was given a rare opportunity in the match against Chelsea in April and repaid Mikel Arteta by scoring twice. Prior to Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s departure in January, Alexandre Lacazette had benched him virtually every week. Aubameyang’s departure occurred in January.

The England Under-21 international scored another magnificent brace during the Gunners’ match against Leeds United at the Emirates Stadium the previous weekend, which helped put the club on the verge of qualifying for the Champions League at that time.

Everyone is aware that the player’s own contract will expire this summer, and Mikel Arteta has expressed his confidence on several occasions that Nketiah will sign a new deal before the season ends.

Speaking before the North Londoners’ 3-0 loss at Tottenham Hotspur on Thursday, which saw them move one point behind their local rivals in fourth place, Glenn Hoddle revealed that he believes the player wants to leave the Emirates Stadium. This information comes in the wake of rumours that Newcastle United and West Ham United are interested in signing the player.

Before the North London derby, he gave an interview to Premier League Productions in which he said, “I believe he definitely wants to leave Arsenal, but if he’s given a chance, he’ll remain.” They are going to have to go down on their knees and beg him to sign a contract.


Unfortunately, both the Gunners and Arteta are likely affected by this.

The teenage marksman, who the Spanish manager referred to as “outstanding” in 2020, has certainly won over the manager from Spain, who is a huge admirer of him.

The problem is that if Arteta had believed in him, he would have played him a lot more often in the games leading up to his amazing performance at Stamford Bridge a month ago.

The fact of the matter is that Nketiah most likely does not feel particularly appreciated by the Emirates Stadium team, and his departure is still a strong possibility.
