Eddie Nketiah’s future remains uncertain after Arsenal include his name on list of released players
Eddie Nketiah’s future remains uncertain after Arsenal put his name on their list of players released this summer, while also confirming they are STILL trying to finish a new contract
- Arsenal put their latest offer for a new deal on the table for Eddie Nketiah
- Nketiah was expected to stay after being offered £100,000 a week
- The club released a list of players who are out of contract this month
- Nketiah was included alongside outgoing players such as Alexandre Lacazette
Eddie Nketiah’s future at Arsenal has again been called into question after the Gunners included his name on a list of players set to be released at the end of the month.
“Our thanks and best wishes go out to every player who leaves us this month,” Arsenal wrote on their official Twitter account, with a link to a list of players who were not contracted.
And Arsenal fans were somewhat surprised to see Nketiah’s name alongside the likes of Alexandre Lacazette, whose return to Lyon has already been confirmed.
Eddie Nketiah’s talks with Arsenal about a new contract are still ongoing
Unlike the others, Nketiah’s name was accompanied by “contract offered, ongoing discussions.”
It was widely believed that the 23-year-old had already agreed to stay in the Emirates after being offered a five-year deal worth £100,000 a week.
He has also been offered a huge sign-up bonus, which could go up to £5million over the course of the deal.
Nketiah was originally expected to leave the Gunners this summer after turning down a number of contract extensions. He called his desire to play regularly the main factor behind his decision.
But the situation changed after he finished the season as the club’s first striker, scoring five goals in their last seven games.
