Liverpool and Chelsea have reportedly entered the race for Arsenal striker Eddie Nketiah.
Nketiah has returned to some form in recent weeks, after struggling to break into the Arsenal squad in recent years. The England youth international is out of contract in the summer, and the 22-year-old forward has no shortage of takers.
According 90 minutesLiverpool and Chelsea have now entered the race to sign Nketiah, along with Everton, West Ham, Newcastle and Crystal Palace.
However, the report also claims that Nketiah is exploring his options due to his ambition to play regular first-team football. Chelsea and Liverpool may find it difficult to offer these promises to Nketiah, due to his world-class squad.
Is the Arsenal star likely to go to Chelsea or Liverpool?
Chelsea have Romelu Lukaku, Timo Werner and even Armando Broja returning from loan. Although the trio have had all their problems this season, you’d be surprised to see Nketiah take his place.
Liverpool rarely play with an outright number nine and have used Roberto Firmino, Diogo Jota and Sadio Mane in false nine roles this season.
Moves to the other clubs mentioned seem more likely, as it could be argued that Nketiah broke into each team’s starting eleven.
