Last ditch attempt to sell this January hopefully - want to see how he does away from us. Prepared for a breakout season once he leaves.
My understanding was that he could not come to an agreement with Palace. The fee was settled, I believe.
The Athletic understands Palace have been unable to reach an agreement for Nketiah. As reported last week, the south London club were eyeing up a deal worth £10 million for the striker. But Arsenal wanted to achieve a price of around £20 million.
Arsenal were willing to reduce their asking price to around £15 million but Palace were reluctant to meet that.
As a result, Palace have now switched their focus to Celtic striker Edouard. Barring a late twist, Nketiah is expected to remain at Arsenal.
We are truly the dumbest team. 20 million of nketiah or we gonna keep him. Palace must have been really confused. But you don’t play him and he will leave free in 12 months. Edu must have thought I have them where I want them. 20 million as he is vital player and they walked out. Arsenal have got it really wrong. They want to show they are not a soft touch and would rather keep players that failed to prove a point. I can see them refusing to sell Pepe as wellArsenal striker Eddie Nketiah is now expected to stay with the club beyond the transfer deadline after a move to Crystal Palace broke down.www.hitc.com
