“Don’t think he’s good enough for Liverpool”

Former Liverpool winger Steve McManaman has urged his former club not to make a move to buy Arsenal striker Eddie Nketiah.

The Gunners forward is out of contract at the Emirates and could play his last game for the club this Sunday against Everton. The 22-year-old looks doomed to leave the North London club this summer, after turning down several contract offers. According to 90 minutes, Liverpool and Chelsea are monitoring the situation of the English player.

Former The Kop hero Steve McManaman has urged his former club to avoid signing the 22-year-old. He believes Nketiah is not good enough to play for the Red Devils and will not challenge the team’s current 5 lineup. The 50-year-old told Horceracing.net:

“Honestly, I don’t think he’s good enough for Liverpool. I like Eddie Nketiah but he’s not going to get rid of any of those five Liverpool strikers and the club has an academy full of central strikers, so I can’t see this move happening. . “

“Mikel Arteta has picked him up a lot lately but not long ago he didn’t seem interested in him. He just needs to work hard and keep improving. “

McManaman has advised Nketiah to stay at the Emirates should Alexandre Lacazette leave this summer. He added:

“[Alexandre] Lacazette could leave on a free transfer this summer, so there could be space for him to continue with Arsenal. But he needs to see if his manager is going to bring in two or three strikers. “

“If he is happy there and he plays there then he should stay at Arsenal.”


Should Eddie Nketiah trade Arsenal for a move to Liverpool?

Nketiah’s biggest motivation when leaving Arsenal is said to be due to not being able to play regularly. By that logic, a move to Liverpool makes little sense.

The Red Devils boast five world-class attacking players in their ranks, who are fighting for three forward positions. The likes of Divock Origi and Takumi Minamino have struggled to find game time at Anfield and Nketiah’s future could look the same if he joins the Red Devils.

In Nketiah’s view, staying at Arsenal could make more sense. With Lacazette gone, the Gunners will no doubt be ready to beef up their attacking options.

It would be impractical for the Gunners to sign two or three centre-backs in one window. If they sign only one striker, Nketiah staying at Emirates could be the right move for the youngster.
