Roy Hodgson thinks that Eddie Nketiah is the ideal ‘type’ of a player Patrick Vieira would like to sign.

Crystal Palace have been linked with the Arsenal striker since the summer, and as the former Palace man admits Nketiah has been on the club’s “radar” for a number of years.

Speaking to Sky Sports Transfer Show, Hodgson has told.

“He’s a player that’s been on the radar for a number of years let alone months.

 

“He’s a player who I know everyone at the club admires very much, and I think he’s the right type of player that Patrick [Vieira] might be interested in – a forward of his type.

 

“Someone who is very quick and makes a lot of runs in behind. They’ve got very tall centre-forwards they can build play through.

 

“I can imagine him being exactly the type of player that Patrick Vieira would like because he’d know a lot about him because I’m sure his contacts at Arsenal are still very good.

 

“He’ll know a lot about him as a person as well.”

The Eagles are currently in a competition with Newcastle, West Ham and Brighton and Hove Albion for the 22-year-old.
