At the end of the contract in June, Eddie Nketiah is in high demand. Two L1 leaders tried their luck for the English striker. Probably in vain.
Arsenal faltered in the final sprint. Fifth in the Premier League, the Gunners will once again miss the Champions League. But that’s not all. The Londoners also risk losing two of their attackers, both at the end of their contracts, at the end of the exercise.
The first, we know him well in France, since it is Alexandre Lacazette (30), international tricolor (16 caps, 3 goals) trained at Olympique Lyonnais, who also dreams of recovering him free. this summer. The second is Eddie Nketiah (22), an English international hopeful (16 caps, 15 achievements). A profile also well known in France.
A few days ago, the DailyMail thus announced that Ligue 1 was attentive to this file. We are able to confirm it to you. And according to our information, Olympique de Marseille and Olympique Lyonnais are two of the French clubs to have positioned themselves on this enticing track, both sportingly and economically.
Only here, the pedigree of the native of Lewisham and his successful end to the season (5 goals over the last 7 days of the Premier League) have prompted many other teams to get on the job. And the least we can say is that they have sporting arguments, sometimes, and financial ones, often, more convincing. Above all, Arsenal have not lost all hope of convincing him to re-enlist and would even touch the goal. There is therefore, to date, almost no chance of seeing Eddie Nketiah on the lawns of L1 in 2022/23. But who doesn’t try anything…
