Arsenal Eye Surprise Move for Eddie Nketiah
Arsenal is reportedly preparing for a surprising move in the upcoming January 2024 transfer window. The target this time is the young attacker, Eddie Nketiah, who might be exchanged for Brentford’s shooting star, Ivan Toney.
Toney, 27, has faced a lengthy ban for his involvement in football betting, despite it being legal in England. Such activities are against the rules for professional footballers. However, the ban is set to expire on January 17th next year.
Given that Toney’s ban will coincide with the opening of the winter transfer market, he has attracted interest from several top clubs due to his impressive record of 68 goals in the previous three seasons with Brentford. Arsenal is one of the teams linked with the player.
According to a report from The Mirror, Arsenal has identified Toney as their target to strengthen the attacking lineup. The intention is to provide additional scoring options to complement Gabriel Jesus, the Brazilian national team’s striker.
The report also suggests that Arsenal might sweeten the deal by offering Nketiah as part of the transfer bid. This move aims to increase the pressure on Brentford and facilitate the player’s release. Additionally, it ensures that Mikel Arteta’s forward options are not left untapped.
Despite starting five out of six Premier League games this season, Nketiah could be sold in this deal as Arteta prioritizes obtaining an established shooting star rather than continuing to develop the young talent, comparable to his decision regarding the goalkeeper position. As Aaron Ramsdale was dropped to allow David Raya to play, despite Ramsdale’s satisfactory performance in the recent period.
