Arsenal striker’s talks with Marseille

Arsenal striker Eddie Nketiah is reportedly emerging as a transfer target for Marseille, with initial positive talks held, according to journalist Santi Aouna.

Nketiah has struggled for playing time in Mikel Arteta’s side in recent times, so it makes sense that he’ll surely be on his way out of the Emirates Stadium this summer for more playing time.

Marseille have Roberto de Zerbi in as their new manager and are also closing in on signing Manchester United forward Mason Greenwood, according to Fabrizio Romano via his Daily Briefing column.

Nketiah could surely be a useful signing for a club like Marseille, even if things haven’t quite gone to plan for him at Arsenal.

The 25-year-old clearly has some potential, even if he’s not quite good enough to be a regular starter for Arsenal, and it will be interesting to see if he benefits from moving abroad for a new challenge.

Arsenal have had a quiet start to the summer, but player sales like this could be essential to help the north London club keep in line with Financial Fair Play laws and to afford the signings they need.

Nketiah being homegrown means Arsenal would make pure profit from his sale, so the club will no doubt be hoping to get a decent fee to give them a bit of breathing room as they look to afford some big-name targets.

Eddie Nketiah could leave Arsenal for Marseille

Riccardo Calafiori to Arsenal remains in the works, while Fabrizio Romano has also told CaughtOffside about Arsenal’s Mikel Merino interest in the latest edition of his exclusive column.

Calafiori and Merino look like ideal additions to Arteta’s squad, while fans will probably be content with squad players like Nketiah leaving this summer.
