England born of Ghanaian descent, Eddie Nketiah has appeared on the radar of Bundesliga side Augsburg.

The 19-year-old Arsenal's youngster is set to make a loan move to the German club who have expressed interest in signing the Englis-born striker.

The Bundesliga has become a popular destination for England's highly-rated youngsters with the likes of Jadon Sancho and Reiss Nelson excelling in Germany this season.

Arsenal are willing to let Nketiah leave before today's deadline with a view to integrating the player back into their first-team plans next season.

Nketiah, a striker, has made 15 first-team appearances for the Gunners over the past couple of seasons and has represented England up to Under 21 level.

Nketiah made his debut during a Europa League match with BATE Borisov in September 2017 and scored twice against Norwich City in the EFL Cup on his second outing.
