Arsenal face losing Eddie Nketiah on a free transfer after the striker’s move to Crystal Palace fell through.

The Eagles had been keen on signing the striker but Patrick Vieira opted for Celtic ace Odsonne Edouard at the final moment, leaving Nketiah frustrated.

Arsenal had hoped to raise as much as £20m through the sale of the striker and their inability to sell Nketiah meant Mikel Arteta was unable to bring in a new striker.

The Gunners’ desire to cash in on Nketiah was based on the fact that the striker has 12 months to run on his contract at the club and he has intimated that he’s unwilling to sign an extension without guarantees over playing time.

With Arteta unwilling to do that, Arsenal face the prospect of losing the academy product on a free transfer in 2022.

Nketiah can sign a pre-contract agreement with foreign clubs from January 1st or wait until the end of the season to join an English club.

Arsenal had put a £20m asking price on Nketiah’s head but they were willing to accept around £12m in the final days of the window, as they face the prospect of losing the 22-year-old.
