Fans of Leeds United have been reacting to a post on Twitter, in which James Marshment questioned whether fans would like to see their club make a move for Arsenal striker, Eddie Nketiah.
According to a recent report by Football.london, Arsenal are potentially prepared to sell Nketiah, as well as Reiss Nelson and Joe Willock, this January, in order for Mikel Arteta to raise funds to put towards the signing of a creative midfielder.
The £18 million-rated striker – who spent the first half of the 2019/20 season on loan at Leeds – scoring five goals and providing one assist over his 19 appearances for the club – has found consistent game time hard to come by under Arteta so far this season, starting just three Premier League games for the north London side.
And after Marshment raised the question as to whether Leeds fans would like to see their club make a move for the 21-year-old – whom the journalist claims would be available for between £15 million and £20 million – in the current transfer window, many flocked to have their say on the matter.
Should Leeds make a move for Nketiah?
So, what exactly did these Leeds United fans have to with regards to their club making a move for Eddie Nketiah?
“Take him in a breath but not a Bielsa player”
“In a heartbeat”
“Yes, would definitely take him”
“Wouldn’t even have to think about it the answer would be yes”
“Fantastic player, no doubt about that – but he already proved he didn’t fit our style of play when he came to us hence why the loan was cut short, excellent play and will made a fab addition for someone, just not us”
“That’s a snip, but I don’t think Leeds will go in for him”
“At that price, a phenomenal investment even short term.”
“Be worth 40-50 in a few years be a great investment”
All in all, it would appear that the majority of these Leeds fans would like to see their club make a move for Nketiah, with many stating they would take the youngster back at the club in a heartbeat, however, others claimed that, while they feel the forward is a fantastic player, he does not overly suit Marcelo Bielsa’s style of football.
