Arsenal forward Eddie Nketiah scored his fifth goal in just seven appearances for England Under 21s in their 2-2 friendly draw against Slovenia on Friday night.
The 20-year-old, who is currently on loan at Leeds United, continues to impress when given a chance, and Gunners supporters on Twitter are excited by the striker’s potential:

Death, taxes and Nketiah scoring. Three obvious things in life.

He’s going to become an Arsenal legend. I’ve got a feeling.

Nketiah has struggled for starts at club level with Leeds manager Marcelo Bielsa continuing to favour Patrick Bamford up front.
Despite his lack of minutes, the forward has still managed to score four goals in eight outings, and he is certainly doing all he can to get more starts at Elland Road.
Bristol City are said to be considering a proposal in the January transfer window to take Nketiah to Ashton Gate if the England Under 21 international is available.
The striker is on a season-long loan and it remains to be seen if Arsenal would consider recalling him if continues to be benched by Leeds.
