Arsenal fans react as Eddie Nketiah linked with loan move

Despite emerging as one of the real shining lights of Arsenal’s pre-season this summer, it appears Eddie Nketiah could be spending the upcoming season away from the Emirates.

The highly-rated 20-year-old burst onto the scene in north London with a dramatic brace against Norwich in the League Cup, but has found first-team opportunities rather hard to come by.

Now, BBC Sport journalist David Ornstein has tweeted that Bristol City, amongst a host of other domestic and foreign clubs, are in talks to sign the striker this summer on a potential season-long loan deal. Leeds also want the forward, per BBC.

After hearing the news Nketiah could be set for a spell away, Arsenal fans took to Twitter to voice their thoughts on the update.

Some Gunners supporters thought a season of regular minutes in senior football would do the young prospect the world of good, and backed him to enjoy a similarly impressive campaign as when Jack Wilshere moved to Bolton back in 2010.

Others however raised concerns over how Unai Emery’s side would potentially be left without a back-up striker if Alexandre Lacazette, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Nicolas Pepe all start together.

Check out some of the divided reaction of Arsenal fans below:
