According to reports, Eddie Nketiah is “unhappy” at Arsenal.
It is alleged that he will ignore a new contract if he does not get more playing time.
The Arsenal academy graduate scored his team’s second goal when they beat Leeds 2-0 in the League Cup on Tuesday night.
But this was just his second appearance this season, with the other coming in the previous round against the Asian Wimbledon Championships.
The 22-year-old has not been named to Mikel Arteta’s nine-man bench even once in the Premier League this season.
European football did not limit his chances any further.
His contract is set to expire at the end of this season.
according to Akram Connor, the Gunners want to hand him a new three-year deal.

But he adds that Nketiah is frustrated by his lack of playing time and will only sign in if he feels he has a chance to play regularly.
Crystal Palace attempted to sign the striker for £12m in August.
But this step failed due to personal conditions.
After Tuesday night’s game, coach Arteta said: “I have no doubts about what he can offer.
“Whatever you throw at him, he wants more, demands more from himself, and he’s another person who I’m glad to see performance and score and help the team, because he totally deserves it.
“But there are a lot of players who play in that position and they have a personal attitude [with his contract running down], but I’m trying to put that aside and try [reward him] Because it’s worth it.”
I have complete faith that he will be an outstanding player and I hope he plays for Arsenal

Later asked about the future of Bitmap, he said: “Yes, but we had a situation in the summer that we tried to solve and in no way could we.
“The contract situation is more common in football, where we come from with Covid and many issues that we have to solve.
“I have complete faith that he will be a great player and I hope he plays for Arsenal.”
Then he added, “I am happy to have him in the team. He is our player and I really consider and appreciate him, and for my part I want him to stay.”
Nkita made 67 first-team appearances for his boyhood club since making his debut under Arsene Wenger in 2017 – scoring 15 goals in the process.
