Highly-rated Arsenal youngster Eddie Nketiah is set to leave the club on a season-long-loan.

The Gunners striker has impressed in pre-season, but Unai Emery believes he will get more out of the 2019/20 season by finding regular first-team football elsewhere.

According to Arsenal transfer news guru David Ornstien, the 20 year-old has courted interest from Bristol City and Leeds United, while clubs from abroad are also eyeing a deal.

Nketiah impressed under Freddie Ljungberg’s stewardship for Arsenal’s u-23’s last season. He netted 9 goals in 10 appearances, including four assists.

He also made five Premier League appearances in 2018/19 and netted his first on the final day against Burnley.

The decision to allow the youngster to move leaves Arsenal a little light up front. Only Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang have proven Premier League experience up top.

But Arsenal did recruit the promising Gabriel Martinelli this summer. The Brazilian starlet has turned heads in pre-season and could provide much needed back up for Unai Emery.
