This is called reversing the trend. Arsenal formalized this Saturday the extension of Eddie Nketiah (23 years old). “Eddie Nketiah is extending his stay with us after agreeing to a new long-term contract”, says the Gunners press release to formalize the news. Eddie Nketiah will wear the number 14 shirt from next season, having worn number 30.
As his contract expired on June 30, and he seemed to be slowly heading towards the small exit door, the pure product of Arsenal’s training center managed to convince Mikel Arteta to make room for him in his effective. His 5 goals in 8 starts at the heart of the end of the season when he relegated captain Alexandre Lacazette to the bench will have allowed him to extend the adventure on the side of the Emirates Stadium, where he is now linked until 2027 .
Just getting started…We’re delighted to announce @EddieNketiah9 has signed a new deal ✍️
