Eddie Nketiah is facing a big summer at Arsenal.
Out of contract at the end of next season, the England U21 international is one of several first-team players likely to leave as Mikel Arteta looks to overhaul his squad in the transfer window.
And there appears to be some interest in Nketiah from fellow Premier League sides.
According to the Mirror, the striker is a target for newly-promoted Watford, whilst he has also previously been linked with Brighton and Hove Albion.
Furthermore, the report states that the Gunners would demand more than £15million to let Nketiah leave this summer as part of the club’s plan to raise between £60m-£70m via player sales.
However, it may take a big offer to tempt Nketiah to depart the Emirates Stadium as he has already told Arteta that he is good enough to lead the line for Arsenal.
“It has been difficult. I have not played as much as I would have liked,” Nketiah said in March after finding first-team opportunities limited at the turn of the year. “I have worked hard and stayed dedicated and that has added to the frustration.
“It is a part of football but one that you don’t want to be involved in.
“I believe in my ability so obviously I think I am capable of playing and helping the team.
“It is frustrating not playing but you have to channel that frustration in a good way, use your time wisely to work hard and prepare for when that opportunity arises.
“When I’m not in the squad, I’m working hard, training like I always would.
“You get some more time to work on specifics. I’ve been trying to use my time wisely.”

Nketiah began the 2020/21 season in competition with Alexandre Lacazette for the centre forward role and scored on his second appearance of the campaign against West Ham United.
That would prove to be one of six goals he scored across all competitions.
But having made a grand total of two starts in 2021, it’s looking like a move away would be the best decision for his career.
