Arsenal striker Eddie Nketiah could move from one Championship club to another in January, according to reports.

The 20-year-old impressed for the Gunners in pre-season but opted to move on loan to Elland Road in order to gain regular first-team action.

However, despite scoring four times in eight appearances, the England Under-21 international has yet to start a league match for the Whites, having to settle for substitute appearances.

According to the Sun, the goal-getter’s parent club want him to be a regular in the starting XI and could consider recalling him in January.

It’s claimed that Bristol City are monitoring the situation as they are keen to offer Nketiah a starting spot.

The Robins tried to sign the youngster in the summer before he chose Leeds instead.

It’s reported that the Ashton Gate club were left angry at Nketiah after he failed to turn up for proposed talks.

But it’s thought that boss Lee Johnson would be prepared to go back in for him again if he is to be recalled by Arsenal, who have the option of doing just that at the turn of the year.

The London-born starlet scored four times in pre-season for the Gunners.
