BORUSSIA MONCHENGLADBACH are considering a January bid to offer Eddie Nketiah a way out of his Arsenal frustration.

Nketiah has largely been kicking his heels in North London having made just two appearances this season and making it clear he wants to leave for the good of his career.

Eddie Nketiah has become a forgotten player at Arsenal

The 22-year-old’s contract runs out at the end of the season but boss Mikel Arteta was forced to keep him at the Emirates last summer because of his lack of striking depth in his squad.

Arsenal want the England Under-21 international to sign a new deal.

But with chances at a premium, having failed to even play a single minute in the Premier League this season, Nketiah is resigned to the knowledge he needs to move on for regular game time.

German club Gladbach can offer just that to the striker, and will be free to talk to the player in January because his deal runs out in the summer.

Nketiah's existing deal runs out in June, although his next club will need to pay the Gunners compensation for developing the player.

The Londoner was linked with various teams throughout last summer 'stransfer window, including Crystal Palace.

But a move never materialised and he can negotiate his next contract with foreign clubs - to start in July - from January.

Nketiah's situation, therefore, may force the Gunners to accept a low transfer fee this winter - putting suitors on red alert.
