Arsenal manager, Mikel Arteta will refuse to sanction a move away for Eddie Nketiah, amid interest from two Premier League clubs.
Nketiah, who has played 23 times in all competitions this season, will not be sold or loaned out in the January transfer window.
The UK Sun reports that Arteta regards the Englishman as a key part of his squad.
Nketiah has drawn interest from Brentford and Crystal Palace in recent times, while Arsenal have been linked with a move for Brentford’s Ivan Toney.
But even if Toney ends up joining Arsenal, they will not allow their 24-year-old player to leave as they would need a strong bench if they want to go all out for the Premier League title in the second half of the season
