You’ll not even start for Fulham – Paul Merson slams Arsenal star

0

Arsenal legend, Paul Merson has hit out at striker Eddie Nketiah, insisting that the player wouldn’t even start for Premier League rivals, Fulham.

Merson believes Mketiah won’t lead Arsenal back into the top-four next season.

Nketiah has netted 23 goals in 92 appearances since making his first-team debut for Arsenal in 2017.

He recently signed a new five-year contract with the Gunners last week.

“All Arsenal have got up front right now is Eddie Nketiah, who recently signed a new contract when it looked like he might leave,” Merson told the Daily Star.

“And no disrespect to Nketiah but Mikel Arteta must realise he won’t get you into the top four. Absolutely no chance. That is a fact.

“Nketiah can’t be spearheading your Champions League push. He’s not getting in ahead of Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Richarlison at Everton and they almost got relegated.

“He is not getting in at Fulham ahead of Aleksandr Mitrovic and they’ve only just been promoted. I am not having a go at him, but he is not getting you top four.”
