Arsenal player Eddie Nketiah has left the door open for a possible switch of nationality from England to Ghana.
The Ghana Football Association is said to have been in contact withNketiah
and his family in recent weeks over a potential switch. Nketiah is keen to be part of the team for the World Cup in Qatar.
“My parents are both Ghanaian, so of course, it’s a possibility. I am open to both – playing for Ghana orEngland,”
Nketiah told The Beautiful Game podcast.
“As you said, I’ve played for the youth teams so naturally when I was obviously younger, they called me up to go play for them.
“Being from Ghana, you are obviously happy they have qualified for the World Cup. I know players like [Thomas] Partey [and] I am happy for them as well.
“It’s always good to have that opportunity to potentially do that.”
The 22 year old Nketiah who will be a free agent in the summer, also spoke about his future.
“My club situation [out of contract at the end of the season] is the priority,”
said the forward.
“At the moment, my full focus is on my club [Arsenal]
and making sure I sort out things for next season.
“Once that’s finished, then I can really sit down with my family and have that discussion. So it’s open to both [countries] and I am not closing the door to anything.
“It’s great to have the opportunity to do so.”
