Aston Villa and Norwich City are now both keen on signing Arsenal forward Eddie Nketiah on loan, according to Bristol Live. The 20-year-old was expected to join Bristol City for the rest of the season, but the interest from two Premier League teams may change things.
It is believed that the Gunners are happy for Nketiah to make the switch to Ashton Gate, while the player himself is also said to be happy to move to Lee Johnson’s side.
However, Villa and Norwich’s involvement could alter the situation. The Villans are without their main striker Wesley Moraes due to injury and could look to snap up Nketiah on a temporary basis.
The Canaries, meanwhile, are looking to add firepower when Teemu Pukki is not available. The Finnish international is currently sidelined with a hamstring injury and Daniel Farke’s team are searching for someone who can cover up front.
Nketiah would certainly be keen to play at the highest level possible, but he will also be mindful that he needs regular first-team football, especially after failing to establish himself at Leeds in the first half of the campaign.
