English striker of Ghanaian descent,  Eddie Nketiah, has emerged as a transfer target for Marseille, with talks reportedly underway for a potential move, according to journalist Santi Aouna.

The 25-year-old, who has struggled for playing time under manager Mikel Arteta, seems set to explore new opportunities this summer.

He has scored five goals and provided two assists in 27 Premier League games for Arsenal.

Nketiah's possible switch aligns with Marseille's ambitious plans under new manager Roberto de Zerbi, who is also closing in on a deal for Manchester United's Mason Greenwood, as reported by Fabrizio Romano.

Despite his challenges at Arsenal, Nketiah is viewed as a promising talent who could strengthen Marseille's attacking options significantly.

A move away from the Emirates Stadium could provide him with the chance to secure regular first-team football.

For Arsenal, offloading players such as Nketiah could play a pivotal role in their financial strategy as they navigate a relatively quiet start to the summer transfer window.
