Bristol City eager to take Arsenal striker Nketiah off Leeds hands

Arsenal striker Eddie Nketiah could be on the move from Leeds United.

The Sun says Bristol City boss Lee Johnson is ready to have a second crack at signing Nketiah.

Johnson wanted to get Nketiah, 20, on loan before he chose Leeds — with the Robins fuming that he did not turn up for planned talks at Ashton Gate.

But he still needs a striker for the promotion push and the Gunners have the option to recall Nketiah in January.

The England Under-21 ace has been largely restricted to the bench under Marcelo Bielsa and Arsenal want him to get regular first-team action.

He has scored four goals in eight appearances in all competitions so far this season.
