Ghana's Eddie Nketiah wants to play regularly for Arsenal in 2019/20 season
Ghanaian youngster Eddie Nketiah says his goal is to play regularly for Arsenal in the upcoming 2019/20 season following his splendid performances in pre-season.
Nketia, 20, was one of the standout players for the Gunners in pre-season, however, the arrival of Nicholas Pepe and the presence of regulars forwards Alexander Lacazette and Pierre Emerick Augbamayeng means the youngster will have to work hard for more playing time.
Despite the star-studded attack at the club, Nketiah states his goal will be to break into that starting line up.
“My end goal in my career is to play for Arsenal on a regular basis,” he told the Telegraph. “I just want to work hard and see how far I can go.”
The highly-rated forward also disclosed he wants to improve his goal-scoring ability and believes his ability to place himself in good positions will make his a fearless attacker.
“I have always tried to get into goalscoring positions. I always want to score goals. I’m a striker, I’m brave, I like to put myself in the places where the chances are going to fall.
"Sometimes they do, sometimes they don’t, but I like to think most of the time they will go in if you get into the right area.
"It’s something I have developed over the years but it comes a bit naturally, being eager to do well and eager to score goals.”
