Arsenal have offered Nketia around to us and a few others for £20m. If we've the money to spare after key signings it could be a great pickup. Quick, young, can finish but most importantly he knows the squad, knows the manager and knows what's expected in training.

But why don't Arsenal want him?

05 Jun 2021 22:37:03
Would take him but for half that amount. I'm sure for 20 mill we could do bettet.

06 Jun 2021 00:15:03
Gummie Was hoping for this and posted about it a few weeks ago. Perfect substitute and cover player. Price needs to come down to £15m then it's a good deal all round.

Seen some big names linked to them Alf, think they are trying to clear out some fringe players to fill the coffers.
Dunno Canada, u23 international, the fact he counts towards that British quota, already scoring in the prem and he offers something different to Paddy and Rodrigo. It's a luxury signing but I don't think he's massively overvalued at that.

06 Jun 2021 01:16:45
And injury prone.

Gummie and Canada -

Eddie didn't impress or really fit in and adapt playing for Leeds in the Championship, what on earth makes you think he would impress playing at an even higher level in the EPL for Leeds!

He simply wouldn't, and as Alf alludes why do Arsenal want rid of Eddie? : looking at his stats would be a first reason he has managed to play only 55 league games in 5 seasons since 2017 scoring just 8 goals! Mediocre.

Big NO THANKS. Need much better.

Pick up for about $16 mill. Good for last 20 min sub. Worth a punt.

06 Jun 2021 06:41:36
Baz He requires significant nurturing but could be a highly effective sub coming on late in matches. He offers a different skillset than Paddy and offers a genuine goal threat as poacher. Would you really put it past Bub not to be able to advance him? He's still young.

06 Jun 2021 07:36:53
Good player but I don’t think Bielsa could see his potential as a Leeds forward. Think that’s where the conversation ends.

06 Jun 2021 09:19:39
Georgey is spending near £20 million on someone to ' come on late in matches ' as you put it good use of transfer funds. In a word NO.

Is he really a genuine goal threat? . His stats don't suggest he is. Leeds appearances 17 league games 3 league goals in the Championship with Leeds dominating matches.

Arsenal fans and Arteta simply don't rate Eddie and he has been overlooked throughout the second half of the season and contributed just 2 goals all season.

He generally doesn't have the technical ability nor strength to hold the ball up well, he certainly isn't that good at pressing, his goalscoring prowess remains negligible certainly at this EPL level. We need much better and certainly much better for the money the gooners want.

My prediction Eddie will join newly promoted Watford but really is a top half Championship level standard player.

He proved it while he was with us, that he is a great option for a slight tweak in tactics. Changes the front line immediately, and causes head aches for an already tired back four. I’d take him at 20mill. He will be worth twice that in two years.

06 Jun 2021 10:44:39
How manybof those Leeds appearances were 10 min substitute ones?

06 Jun 2021 13:46:11
Canada - that's the point!

Never felt that Bielsa trusted Eddie to be more than a 10 minute sub :

at £20 million we need so much more from a striker!

one that can play and effect the entire 90 minutes if needs be, if Bamford was injured etc.

06 Jun 2021 14:41:38
Why did Bielsa treat him as a 10 min sub Baz?
Because Bamford was scoring that's why. Plus Eddie never got 100% Leeds fit due to where he started from and injuries.
So if you are looking to replace Bam with better then yes, we need someone special (would cost a lot more than 20 mill) . If we want someone to come on and use their guile and pace on a defence that Bamford has run ragged all game them the 10 mill I suggest is OK and Nketiah could be the answer.
Just look at how much he improved at Leeds. Enough to recall him and put him in their first team. He's young enough to become a great striker.

06 Jun 2021 17:22:25
A Bub fit Eddie, would be a massive bonus to us. Just as he got up to speed, they took him back!

06 Jun 2021 19:56:42
What 🇨🇦 said.
Baz This is why I'd only want us to spend in between £13m and £15m for him. I accept £20m for a substitute is prohibitive. Eddie has potential.
