German Bundesliga side Bayer Leverkusen has also set sights on signing the 22-year-old.
Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano Tweeted: “Eddie Nketiah received a new contract proposal from Arsenal days ago. There’s still nothing agreed as of today.”
“AFC, West Ham, Watford, Crystal Palace are interested.”
“Bayer Leverkusen are pushing since months to sign him on a permanent deal.”
Nketiah joined Arsenal from Chelsea in 2015 before spending time on loan at Leeds United in the 2019/20 season.
