Hammers boss David Moyes is obviously keen to bolster his centre-forward ranks at the London Stadium this summer.

Gunners hitman Nketiah is one of the names to have been linked with West Ham according to the Evening Standard and The Sun.

The East London outfit’s hopes of signing the 22-year-old have just been boosted.

West Ham could sign Arsenal striker Eddie Nketiah on the cheap

The Gunners striker is out of contract next summer.

The Athletic claims that Mikel Arteta wants Eddie to sign a new deal at The Emirates in order to protect his value.

 

That is allegedly unlikely to happen, however, with the young striker keen to play regular first-team action elsewhere.

It is suggested by The Athletic that should Nketiah refuse a new deal, Arsenal will move him on this summer.

The Sun recently claimed that the 22-year–old could be available for around £20 million this summer.

That asking price will surely drop if he doesn’t sign a new contract with the Gunners as the months continue to drag on.

If West Ham could pick Nketiah up for around £10 million it may well be a very good deal for us.

Consider the fact that the Gunners starlet is still yet to prove himself at the highest level, however, any more than that and the Hammers should avoid him.
