Playing Career


Club(s)
Nketiah began his playing career at Hillyfielders FC, a Sunday League team, before joining Chelsea FC youth system as a nine-year old in 2008 and played his way through the levels, before being released in 2015 for being 'too small'. He joined the Arsenal FC Academy, and continued his journey through the levels, breaking into the first team in 2017, but remained on the fringes. He was set to join the Bundesliga with FC Augsburg on loan during the January 2019 transfer window, but remained in London after first-team opportunities opened up because of injuries.  He did go out on loan, on 8 August 2019, to Leeds United AFC initially for the season, but was recalled on New Years Day, and has remained with Arsenal, signing a new contract in 2022.
