Mikel Arteta’s team still had no takers for Nketiah and now risk losing the forward for nothing.

With less than a year remaining on his deal at the Emirates Stadium, Nketiah can leave his boyhood club for nothing next summer unless he agrees a new deal with the Gunners.

The young striker Nketiah’s future is set to be decided in the coming weeks with the striker able to sign a pre-contract agreement with non-English sides in January over a free transfer next summer.

Nketiah was one of a number of squad members at Arsenal that the club were looking to move on over the summer but failed to do so.
