OM and OL have tried Eddie Nketiah

At the end of his contract in June, Eddie Nketiah is in great demand. Two L1 clubs have tried their luck for the English striker. Probably in vain.

Arsenal has floundered in the final sprint. Fifth in the Premier League, the Gunners will once again miss the Champions League. But that’s not all. The Londoners also risk losing two of their strikers, both at the end of their contracts, at the end of the year.

The first one is well known in France, since it is Alexandre Lacazette (30 years), a French international (16 caps, 3 goals) trained at Olympique Lyonnais, who dreams of getting him back for free this summer. The second is Eddie Nketiah (22 years old), an English U-21 international (16 caps, 15 goals). A profile also well known in France.

A few days ago, the Daily Mail announced that the Ligue 1 was attentive to this file. We are able to confirm this. And according to our information, Olympique de Marseille and Olympique Lyonnais are two of the French clubs that have positioned themselves on this attractive track, both on the sporting and economic level.

However, the pedigree of the Lewisham native and his successful end of season (5 goals in the last 7 Premier League games) have pushed many other teams to get involved. And the least we can say is that they have sporting arguments, sometimes, and financial, often, more convincing. Above all, Arsenal has not lost all hope of convincing him to return and would even touch the goal. There is therefore, to this day, almost no chance of seeing Eddie Nketiah on the lawns of L1 in 2022/23. But who does not try anything…
