Nketiah will extend his contract because of Arteta

While the young English star was expected to leave the Gunners, he intends to extend his contract.

Eddie Nketiah

has announced that he intends to extend his contract with

Arsenal

this summer.

Enktiah, who has been on the bench for most of the season, reached the starting line-up in the final and played an important role in his team's results by scoring 5 goals in 8 games. Given that he did not have much opportunity overall, he was expected to leave the Emirates Stadium in the summer, but the English star decided to continue playing under Mikel Arteta.

He said:

“I have come through the academy, I have the attachment with the club. The manager was very supportive and pushed a lot for me to stay. Once I had those kinds of assurances, and no doubts that I will get opportunities to play next season, it was almost impossible for me to leave.

“That run [of matches] really helped me. It gave me the feeling I always wanted, that I have craved. That feeling of playing well, doing well, scoring. It helped me with my decision and made it a lot clearer. Experiencing that with my family, we knew this is the place to be. There is nothing quite like doing well for the club you support and love.”

He added:

“When you get a run of eight games in the first team, you get that database and platform to show everything you can do.

"I have worked a lot with the manager on playing with my back to goal, on the spaces to drop into and link play. Of course it has been developed. But at the same time you don’t get here by just standing in the penalty box and scoring a goal.

“People are always going to say things, but I know what I can do. The people that have played with me, played against me, the coaches that have worked with me, I know how they feel about me.”
