Reports suggest that an in-form Arsenal forward is set to switch his international allegiance from Europe to Africa in an effort to aid a certain country's 2022 FIFA World Cup ambitions.
According to 442gh.com, Eddie Nketiah has abandoned hopes of playing for England and has committed to playing for Ghana from here on out.
The same report suggests that Nketiah has already obtained a Ghanaian passport, and pending other documentation, the 22-year-old will be eligible to represent the Black Stars.
The Ghana Football Association (GFA) has been informed of the striker's wish to play for the four-time Africa Cup of Nations champions as the Gunners forward aims to wear the Ghana jersey at 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar later this year.
Nketiah is not the only Ghanaian the GFA are eager to lure from their European counterparts.
Chelsea academy products Callum Hudson-Odoi and Tariq Lamptey, now of Brighton & Hove Albion, are also players the West Africans are keen to bring on board before the global showpiece commences., while Spanish-born brothers Inaki and Nico Williams, who both play for Athletic Bilbao, are also being courted as the Ghanaians look to bolster their squad.
The Black Stars have been drawn into a tough group for the World Cup as they prepare to face Portugal, Uruguay and South Korea in the Gulf, and will need all the reinforcements they can get.
Nketiah has been in a rich vein of form for the north London side, having scored four goals in his last five starts for Mikel Arteta's men.
The Gunners forward was even able to emulate the feat of another African legend who plied his trade for the 13-time English league champions in Nwankwo Kanu over the weekend when he became the first Arsenal player since the Nigerian to score a brace in the opening 10 minutes of a Premier League game, helping his side secure a 2-1 victory over Leeds United.
