Arsenal face pressure to sell striker to Newcastle in next 24 hours


Arsenal fans face an anxious final 24 hours in the January transfer deadline, with Newcastle likely to test Mikel Arteta’s side with a bid to sign striker Eddie Nketiah.

With news that Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is set for a straight loan move to Barcelona, the departure of Eddie Nketiah would certainly leave the Gunners a little light in the goalscoring department – unless a signing is made in the final hours on Monday.

The 22-year-old is high on the radar of Newcastle boss Eddie Howe, according to the Guardian, but having turned down advances of Crystal Palace, it doesn’t seem to like the Gunners are keen to lose the Englishman.

Should Nketiah refuse to sign a new contract, which expires this summer, an option to buy or up-front transfer from cash-rich Newcastle could yet tempt a late move on deadline day.
