Ghana's No. 1

Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher offers Eddie Nketiah advice over his future at Arsenal

Published on: 10 May 2022

Former Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher has advised Eddie Nketiah to leave Arsenal at the end of the season. 

The 22-year-old has been in fine form for the Gunners but his current deal expires at the end of the campaign, with the England U21 reluctant to extend his stay at the club.

Eddie Nketiah wants to be guaranteed more play time and a decision to stay will be based on that despite his recent run of games.

Jamie Carragher feels Nketiah might get a better career when he leaves the London side.

"Yes [Arsenal should try to keep him] but I don’t think he’ll ever end up first-choice striker, so I think it would be better for him to move on," he told Sky Sports.

Meanwhile, former Arsenal forward Ian Wright wants the soon-to-be Ghana international to stay at the club especially with Champions League football at stake.

"If I can get three games in a row and I’m not doing it then I totally understand people saying I’m not ready, but he says just give me a run of games. If he can continue to score goals that are going to fire Arsenal into fourth then you have to say to yourself if he did leave Arsenal, he’s going to be playing Champions League. If he did leave Arsenal where’s he going that he’s going to be playing Champions League? He’s in a great position to stay. I’d love him to stay," said Ian Wright.

Nketiah has scored four goals in his last four English Premier League for Arsenal.
