Watford fans react to Eddie Nketiah links
A number of Watford fans have taken to Twitter to comment on reports from the Daily Mirror over the weekend claiming that the Hornets want Eddie Nketiah from Arsenal this summer.
Nketiah could well be on the move during the coming months. As noted by the Mirror, his contract at the Emirates expires at the end of next season.
He has struggled to really prove that he deserves a more prominent role in Mikel Arteta’s plans. The 22-year-old ended the campaign with just two goals in the Premier League.
Arsenal are reportedly open to selling the England under-21 international this summer. They apparently want a fee of at least £15 million – though many of their supporters felt that the club need to demand a lot more.
And Watford are keen to make a move happen ahead of their top flight return.
The Hornets sealed automatic-promotion this past season. However, Ismaila Sarr was the only member of their squad to reach double figures for league goals.
Joao Pedro looks to have an incredibly bright future ahead. However, it may be asking a lot to expect the teenager to shoulder the majority of the goalscoring burden in the Premier League.
‘Yes please’: Plenty of Watford fans want Nketiah signed from Arsenal
And that may be why many Watford fans would seemingly like to see Nketiah join the club this summer.
Admittedly, some have their concerns about the reported price tag. They are not convinced that he has done enough to justify a £15 million fee – particularly when he will be a free agent next year.
But several have claimed that he would be an extremely exciting addition…
don’t get me excited

Would want him (because sorry lads, we can’t just expect to sign a prolific, proven goalscorer), but then again, £15 million is for sure too much, especially as he’s going into the last year of his contract https://t.co/qTZtI5o7B1

If we’re going to go all out for a striker, I’m perfectly happy going for someone like Nketiah who is very talented and still has improving to do. https://t.co/Aj1Rh7JlOp
