Arsenal striker Eddie Nketiah is coy on his Ghana nationality switch despite reports that his nationality switch is close.

Nobody in history has scored more goals for England’s U21 side than Nketiah's 16 efforts, but there is still a chance he could switch allegiance to Ghana if opportunities with the Three Lions prove hard to come by.

Nketiah said of joining the Black Stars: “There have been discussions, but nothing has been decided.”

Black Stars head coach Otto Addo confirmed that he expects the nationality switches of  three players to be concluded and the Arsenal striker is  expected among the three.

The Black Stars defeated fierce rivals Nigeria to book their place at the Qatar 2022 FIFA World Cup and are already making plans to augment their squad.

Ghana's biggest problem during the World Cup qualifiers and even at the 2021 AFCON was their lack of a potent attacking threat with the likes of Jordan Ayew, and others rarely scoring with Andre Ayew emerging as the top scorer for the team with a paltry three goals during the World Cup qualifiers.

The 22 year old Nketiah was born in Lewisham- England to Ghanaian parent but currently plays for the English U-21 where he has 17 caps with 16 goals at that level but is yet to make an appearance for the Three Lions.

Nketiah is open to the idea of playing for Ghana at the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar as its his best shot of a World Cup appearance.
