Eddie Nketiah: Hat-trick hero

Eddie Nketiah took his Carabao Cup haul to 9 with a hat-trick against Sunderland in a 5-1 thrashing at the Emirates Stadium on Tuesday night.

With six months left on his current deal at Arsenal, the Gunners are in a weak bargaining position, and face losing the England U21 record scorer for free in the summer, although they may receive some compensation if he joins a fellow Premier League club.

And, speaking after the game, Nketiah made his feelings very clear, saying that he was at Arsenal for now, but dodging any potential questions on his future.

Meanwhile, his boss Mikel Arteta was also clear in his desire to keep Nketiah, saying:

“We really want Nketiah to stay at Arsenal”

“He needs extra minutes. That is his want and that’s what we try to do. Eddie is an essential part of the squad”

However, should a bid arrive in January, the club would be foolish not to consider it, and one could yet arrive.
