Football SPORTS GIST TRANSFER ARSENAL IN DANGER OF LOOSING EDDIE NKETIAH FOR FREE By Admin Posted on 3 weeks ago 1 min read 0 0 Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Google+ Share on Pinterest Share on Linkedin Farouq Oduola A. Arsenal are in danger of losing promising striker Eddie Nketiah for free, according to reports on Sunday, after failing to find a team ready to sign him during the summer transfer window. With his contract set to expire at the end of the season, Nketiah, 22, can open discussions with clubs outside of England as early as January 1. He can sign a precontract agreement to move on a free transfer, activated on July 1. According to the report, Arsenal requested a £20 million transfer fee at the start of the summer, which was reduced to £12 million by the end of the window. They may, however, be left empty-handed. He was linked with Crystal Palace as the window closed but a deal could not be agreed. If the striker joins another Premier League club at the end of his contract, Arsenal will be entitled to considerable compensation because he will still be under the age of 24 when Bosman free transfers begin to apply.
