OGC Nice are said to be interested in young Arsenal striker Eddie Nketiah, who expired in June with the London club.
It is no secret that the recruitment policy of theOGC Nice is particularly focused on young talents in the making. Last summer, the Aiglons recruited Calvin stengs (22 years old), Justin kluivert (22 years old), Jean-Clair Todibo (21 years old) or Melvin bard (22 years old). Rather efficient operation since Nice is currently in 4th place in Ligue 1, just one point from the podium.
The leaders therefore logically want to continue on this path. And according to The Athletic, the last track of the Azuréens leads to a young hope ofArsenal, Eddie nketiah (22 years old). The striker hasn’t played a minute in the Premier League this season and has had to settle for two matches ofEFL Cup, during which he still scored two goals.
Eddie Nketiah has told Arsenal he wishes to leave after turning down another contact extension on Wednesday.

Although his trainer Mikel arteta wants to keep it, the international hope English (17 caps, 16 goals) wants more playing time and recently refused an offer of extension of the Gunners. While his contract expires in June 2022, he would have communicated his desire to leave for his club.
Nice intends to take advantage of this disagreement and could very soon offer a contract to the young Englishman. Still according to the English media, the Borussia Monchengladbach would also be interested in the attacker of the Gunners. Even if the competition is strong in attack, Amine Gouiri, author of 8 goals and 4 assists this season, could well receive offers difficult to refuse, the arrival of Nketiah would then be a way of anticipating a possible departure of the former Lyonnais.
