Arsenal reportedly have no intention of accepting any cut-price bids for Eddie Nketiah on transfer deadline day.
With five months left on his contract and a reluctance to pen fresh terms, the academy graduate has been heavily linked with a departure from the Emirates Stadium.
Newcastle United and Crystal Palace are known to be fighting for the 22-year-old’s signature, while foreign clubs have the option of discussing a pre-contract agreement.
However, according to transfer expert Fabrizio Romano, the Gunners have decided to retain the services of Nketiah for the remainder of the campaign.
The alleged decision comes on the back of several players having already departed the Premier League outfit without any replacements being acquired.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, currently out of favour under Mikel Arteta, is also being tipped to join a new club over the coming hours.
