Crystal Palace are interested in signing Eddie Nketiah but they face competition for the Arsenal striker from another Premier League side.
Nketiah’s Arsenal contract is set to expire at the end of the current campaign and he is able to sign a pre-contract agreement with a foreign club ahead of next season.
German Bundesliga side Bayer Leverkusen are monitoring Nketiah’s availability, in addition to at least one Premier League club.
Arsenal want to keep the 22-year-old striker but their offer of a new contract was rejected by the player.
Nketiah has score five goals in six matches in all competitions this season, including a hat-trick in Arsenals 5-1 Carabao Cup win against Sunderland last month.
Who will be on the move in January?
The January transfer window opens on Saturday January 1, 2022 and closes at 11pm on Monday January 31.
