Micah Richards has told Arsenal why they need to offer Eddie Nketiah that new contract at Mikel Arteta is hoping for

Nketiah is regarded very highly by the Arsenal coaches and is seen as a player, that given the chance, can develop into a striker that will have the ability to score goals on a weekly basis.

But the 22-year-old striker’s future at the Gunners has been in doubt after a lack of game time, and the fact that he is out of contract at the end of the season, and it is believed that he will be leaving the club

Earlier this week, Nketiah even confirmed there has been an offer of a new deal from Arsenal but that he may look to move on at the end of the season.

However, The striker has been leading the line for Arsenal in recent matches and scored two goals in their 4-2 victory over Chelsea on Wednesday night, and Mikel Arteta has recently suggested that he will be handed a new contract to stay.

And after seeing his performances against Chelsea at the weekend, Richards had admitted how impressed he was with the performances of Nketiah: “In terms of his desire and running in behind”, Richards said on BBC’s Match of the Day.

“Lacazette is a good player but he comes to feet. When you stretch defenders, it’s so hard for them when they’re running the wrong way.

“He’s always in the right positions. You’ve got to be in there, it’s a poachers goal. He bangs in goals for fun. He really took his chance.”

    Please let Arteta and Edu stop making mistakes that are not favorable to Arsenal club before any signing in the summer they must first of all extend the contract of Eddie Nketia before looking outwardly many times the one they brought in are not better than the one we already have and as a coach you map out how you will utilize your players by giving them minutes truly there exceptional players but sometimes they have off day then why not try your own in keeping them happy after all those you stick with and lost no one had kill you if you are not featuring a player you are not doing him any good rather you are making him to be match rusty not to sign new players in the summer matters but making sure you feature them first you will build your trust in all your players otherwise you are not going to get the best out of them
