Chelsea are keeping an eye on Eddie Nketiah’s situation as his contract with Arsenal nears its end, according to reports.
The hierarchy at Stamford Bridge, according to 90 Minutes, is keeping an eye on the player who graduated from the club’s academy in 2015.
Chelsea monitoring Eddie Nketiah
Prior to his ascension to the rank of Gunner, Nketiah’s lineage was blue.
He played on the same youth teams as Mason Mount, Trevoh Chalobah, and Declan Rice, but unlike Rice, he was unable to get a professional deal with the club.
Instead, the young striker joined Arsenal, and he is just now starting to reap the advantages of his decision to go to the other side of town.
Mikel Arteta has used him as his main centre striker since the middle of April, relegating Alexandre Lacazette to the side positions.
Nketiah scored twice in just his second Premier League game of the season, which was against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge. This was just Nketiah’s second Premier League appearance.
After a few weeks, the Englishman netted another brace for Arsenal in their 2-1 triumph against Leeds United.
Despite the fact that he has established himself as Arteta’s “phenomenal” go-to attacker, it is still uncertain if he will lead the line next season.
His Arsenal contract is scheduled to expire at the end of the season, and 90min claim it is “increasingly likely” that he will depart the club in the summer.
A growing list of potential suitors is apparently waiting for Nketiah to pack his belongings, including Chelsea and Liverpool, who have both shown interest in signing him.
