Crystal Palace has set their sights on Arsenal’s striker, Eddie Nketiah, as a major target for this summer’s transfer window.
During his time at Arsenal, Nketiah has featured in a total of 131 games, impressively scoring 32 goals and providing 5 assists. His notable performances have not gone unnoticed, and Transfermarkt.com values him at 25 million euros.
The South London club intends to make a move to fill the void left by the departure of Wilfried Zaha, who has recently joined Galatasaray. Crystal Palace sees Nketiah as a potential replacement and is eager to secure his services.
While Eddie Nketiah is content with his current position at Arsenal, The Sun reports that he may be tempted by the prospect of joining Crystal Palace. The allure of regular playing time and the advantage of not having to relocate to a different city could sway his decision.
The success of the potential deal, however, might hinge on the future of another Arsenal player, Folarin Balogun. If Balogun is transferred, it would leave Arsenal with only two senior strikers in the form of Gabriel Jesus and Eddie Nketiah, potentially impacting their attacking options.
