Report: Hammers could snap up Arsenal ace

West Ham could do a deal to sign Eddie Nketiah from Arsenal this summer, according to the London Evening Standard.

The report claims that the Hammers have been given a boost in their potential pursuit of the Gunners striker, having failed to sign a forward in the January transfer window.

We know that the Irons will be on the lookout for a new striker this summer, especially with Mikey Antonio’s injury woes.

The Irons are said to have been tracking Nketiah since January and would have been willing to do a deal then, though Arsenal dug their heels in and kept the 21-year-old.

The England U21 international has made 26 appearances in all competitions this season, scoring five goals, but he has not played more than a minute in the Premier League since January, when he made a late substitute cameo against Crystal Palace.

Folarin Balogun has signed a new contract at the club and that has left Nketiah in a strange position, as he will have to compete with Balogun for a spot in Arsenal’s squad.

Boss David Moyes is said to be a fan of Nketiah and believes his intensity and hard running makes him a good fit for the Irons.

  1. I would be extremely disappointed to see him join, for a number of reasons probably the best reason is that we have a far better young striker in Mipo and I just would be shocked to see us sign a player who regularly does not make the Arsenal squad – which is a bang average squad.
