According to the latest Arsenal transfer news on FootballTransfers, the Gunners are looking to sign a new ‘elite’ striker. Mikel Arteta has identified Dusan Vlahovic, Benjamin Sesko, and Ivan Toney as the next striker for the Gunners. However, it seems to be difficult for Arsenal to get a new striker because of the Financial Fair Play. So, they have to offload a player to get a new striker. The player that Mikel Arteta identified to offload from his squad is Eddie Nketiah. The Arsenal striker is struggling to find proper game time and could be a great option for the mid-table Premier League clubs. Arsenal wants to offload Eddie Nketiah in January amidst interests from other clubs.

Arsenal transfer news: Nketiah price set by Arsenal

Eddie Nketiah is one striker who is getting offers from various other Premier League clubs. According to Now Arsenal, an Arsenal fan account on Twitter, Brentford, Fulham, and West Ham are interested in signing Nketiah. Also, they have revealed the price Arsenal would ask for the striker. The Gunners would sell Nketiah only if a club comes with an offer in the region of £40 million. The main target for Arsenal is Dusan Vlahovic according to FootballTransfers. So, it would be logical to sell Nketiah to make way for an ‘elite’ striker like Vlahovic in January which would boost the chances of the Gunners winning the Premier League. Thus, this Arsenal transfer news on Eddie Nketiah could be a positive one for Arsenal fans.

At times, Arteta preferred Kai Havertz over Nketiah and with the form Gabriel Jesus is in, it will be hard for Eddie Nketiah to get regular game time at the Emirates Stadium. Thus, leaving Arsenal and joining a club where he would be the top striker would do a world of good for the English striker in reviving his career.
