While Nketiah has struggled for regular game time in the Premier League, it seems Arteta wants him to be a part of his squad.
West Ham must now move on to other options. The Hammers have been linked with a move for Josh King of AFC Bournemouth, while Stade Reims striker Boulaye Dia could be another option.
According to reports from Evening Standard, the Hammers have held talks with Dia’s representatives over a possible move. The 24-year-old has scored 12 goals in all competitions and would be a fantastic addition for the club.
