Arsenal’s Eddie Nketiah could quit Leeds loan for Championship rivals

Leeds face a battle to hold onto Arsenal starlet Eddie Nketiah in January, with Bristol City interested in snagging him.

The striker has yet to start a Championship game under Marcelo Bielsa but has looked sharp when he has been called on.

With four goals to his name in substitute appearances only, Nketiah still represents a hot prospect for rival clubs.

If Bielsa continues to prefer Patrick Bamford in attack, Arsenal may decide to cut their losses and recall the 20-year-old.

Plenty of Leeds fans have called on the Argentine manager to replace the goal-shy striker with the young Gunner.

Bristol City were after Nketiah in the summer and will try again to land him in the new year, according to The Sun.

Robins boss Lee Johnson has Famara Diedhiou and Andreas Weimann as his primary options in attack.

But he would love to have Nketiah available to boost his side’s firepower as they look to reach the play-offs.

Leeds hero Danny Mills is confident that Bielsa “doesn’t trust” Nketiah yet despite seeing him find the back of the net for club and country on a regular basis.

Eddie Nketiah has had little to celebrate during his time at Leeds so far

“Yeah he is, but he just hasn’t really had a chance at Leeds from the start,” Mills told Football Insider when asked if Nketiah was banging on the manager’s door.

“It’s an interesting one, clearly it’s something that Bielsa doesn’t quite see in training, playing international football is different, it’s not the same as playing league football and certainly Championship football.

“You have to trust Marcelo Bielsa and say what is he not seeing in training? What is not happening for him to not be put in the starting line up?

“There’s just something that isn’t right. Bielsa clearly doesn’t trust him yet.”
