• In-form striker has scored in his last two matches
  • Arteta says club may still move in transfer market

Mikel Arteta believes Eddie Nketiah will be on the brink of a senior England call-up if the in-form striker continues his impressive start to the season.

Nketiah has scored poacher’s goals in his past two outings, emerging from the bench to convert the winner against West Ham and scoring a last-minute clincher in the Carabao Cup victory at Leicester. The 21-year-old has a record better than a goal every two full games in the Arsenal first team and has shone at England level too, scoring eight times in as many caps for the under-21s. Arteta has made a project of Nketiah since the player’s return from a loan at Leeds in January and believes that can lead to a call from Gareth Southgate.
