After reliable club insider Phil Hay revealed on Twitter that Leeds United are targeting a loan move for Arsenal striker Eddie Nketiah as an alternative to Ryan Kent on Tuesday, lots of Whites fans have provided the same response.
Another possibility emerging for Leeds United – 20-year-old prospect Eddie Nketiah at Arsenal. Understand he's being considered if the club opt to take an out-and-out forward over Ryan Kent. #lufc

Hay had previously said that the Yorkshire outfit wanted to bring the Liverpool winger to Elland Road with Kemar Roofe closing in on a move to Belgian side Anderlecht, but now he has brought a new name to the table in Nketiah.
The Athletic’s Leeds correspondent understands that the club will move for the Gunners youngster if they opt to get an out-and-out attacker rather than a wide player, with Patrick Bamford their only senior option as things stand if Roofe does go.

While he did get off the mark in the season-opening win against Bristol City on Sunday, his only back up right now comes in the form of young duo Ryan Edmondson and Kun Temenuzhkov.
Leeds supporters were quick to reply to Hay as they always are, and rather than pick one or the other many of them actually told the current Championship table-toppers to sign both.
