Arsenal prodigy odds-on for Prem start; 20/1 for England WC place
Eddie Nketiah is on the cusp of making his first Premier League start at Arsenal, according to the latest odds.
Our trading team make it just 6/10 for the 18-year-old to start a Prem game for the Gunners before the season ends.
The teenager bagged a brace in Arsenal’s 2-1 win over Norwich City in Tuesday night’s Carabao Cup clash. And bright things are expected of the lad from Lewisham.
As it stands, he’s 28/1 to be this season’s Carabao Cup top scorer. That could prove a popular bet, with the young Gunner making a strong case to start the club’s Quarter-Final tie
Meanwhile, 20/1 says Nketiah’s performances earn him a spot in England’s World Cup 2018 squad.
While he’d be a surprise inclusion, the metioric rise of Marcus Rashford shows a top talent can go from unknown to a major tournament with England almost overnight.
As for hugely optimistic Gooners, they can back the youngster to one day become the club’s all-time top scorer at a very fitting price.
Thierry Henry currently tops the club’s all-time scoring charts with 228 strikes, and it’s 228/1 Nketiah breaks the record during his time at the Emirates.
Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: “Gooners finally have something to cheer about, it seems, with Nketiah already looking like a real fan favourite. The latest odds may suggest he has it all to do to surpass Henry’s record figure, but two goals in as many senior appearances have at least called our traders into action.”
