Arsenal manager Unai Emery is prepared to let young striker Eddie Nketiah go on loan for the season so the England U21 striker can continue his development.

Nketiah has made eight senior appearances for the Gunners, playing five times in the Premier League last season and getting on the scoresheet in a 3-1 win over Burnley at Turf Moor.

But with the likes of Alexandre Lacazette, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alex Iwobi all ahead of him in the pecking order in the Arsenal first-team he is unlikely to start many games next season, and thus Emery is willing to let him go temporarily.

Newly-promoted Charlton Athletic appear to be the most likely destination for Nketiah at the moment.
