Though, his contract expires at the end of the season, with the young forward having rejected an offer from Arsenal amidst concerns over his game time.
If he is to become a free agent in the summer, it will not be for long, with the former England under-21 international attracting reported interest from the likes of Crystal Palace and Borussia Monchengladbach.
CPFC fans! Would you take Nketiah?
A boost for Vieira
Amidst Arsenal’s latest links with Gabriel Jesus and Tammy Abraham, the future of Nketiah, despite his run of starts, does not look promising.
Nketiah – who has been dubbed “sensational” by James Benge on Twitter – is said to be considering offers from both Palace and Monchengladbach.
The latest reports surrounding Nketiah appear to be positive for Palace, who would majorly benefit in this deal.
Until recent, the striker has not been afforded consistent minutes at Arsenal but has seized his opportunities with two goals in three starts.
Crystal Palace have not struggled as such in their quest to find the back of the net, ranking in ninth place for goals scored in the Premier League this season with 43 goals.
Though, they could have scored more – with both Christian Benteke and Odsonne Edouard missing a combined 14 big chances. Not to mention the fact that their best performing striker in terms of goals is Edouard in the league this season with just six – Palace’s top scorer meanwhile is a winger, while their second highest scorer is a central midfielder.
They still have room for improvement in the centre-forward position, and a hungry Nketiah with something to prove could well be a viable option for Vieira’s side.
The Palace boss would be thrilled with such a move.
