Olympique Marseille are preparing to make a move for Arsenal forward Eddie Nketiah as the summer transfer window approaches. The English-born Ghanaian has found it difficult to secure consistent game time at Arsenal and might be on the move before the new season kicks off.


Last season, Nketiah managed only ten Premier League starts and has seen his opportunities diminish with Gabriel Jesus and Kai Havertz taking priority in the forward positions. Marseille, who have also shown interest in another English player, Mason Greenwood, are keeping a close eye on Nketiah’s situation at Arsenal. Reports indicate that the French club has begun exploring the possibility of a transfer this summer.


Roberto De Zerbi, the new manager at Marseille who previously managed Brighton in the Premier League, is anticipated to play a significant role in persuading Nketiah to join the team at the Stade Vélodrome. 


Nketiah’s current contract with Arsenal runs until the summer of 2027, but there is a possibility he could be loaned out depending on how negotiations between the clubs progress. The 25-year-old striker has netted 19 goals in 116 appearances in the Premier League to date.
