Arsenal striker Eddie Nketiah will play for Ghana ahead of the 2022 World Cup, according to UK-based Performance Coach Freddy Twum.
Freddy Twum is a personal trainer of the Arsenal star and has hinted on the possibility of the in-form forward playing for the four-time African champions.
“At some point, Eddie Nketiah will come but I hope it will be before the World Cup”, Twum told Accra-based Happy FM.
“When he comes it will really help the Black Stars. Jordan Ayew is fading out and if (Nketiah) comes it will really help us”.
Born in British to Ghanaian parents, Nketiah has been on the wish list of the Ghana Football Association (GFA) for some time now, with the FA said to have identified him as a possible addition to the Black Stars team.
The attempts to persuade the player to play for Ghana has yielded no positive outcome yet with the GFA still continuing their pursuit.
Eddie Nketiah of Arsenal, Callum Hudson-Odoi of Chelsea, Tariq Lamptey of Brighton, and the Inaki brothers are among players, that the GFA are engaging in talks over a potential nationality switch according to sources.
Several media outlets in the UK and Ghana have all reported on England losing out on the Arsenal forward to Ghana.
