Eddie Nketiah has rejected a contract offer from Arsenal.
However the striker's priority is to play regular football rather than secure improved terms, and an exit currently remains the most likely outcome.

German side Borussia Monchengladbach are among his admirers and Nketiah is free to arrange a pre-contract with a foreign club from January 1.
