Bristol City are hopeful of concluding a transfer deal or two ahead of the weekend as the Robins look to make the moves that could add the quality needed to make the top six, and top of the list is Arsenal striker Eddie Nketiah. Head coach Lee Johnson is hopeful of recruiting at least one player before the game against Wigan on Saturday, with several "plates spinning".
On Nketiah, Bristol Live understands that the Robins have agreed a deal with Arsenal to loan Nketiah, and the Gunners are happy to send the 20-year-old to Ashton Gate for the remainder of the campaign as was the case in the summer window.
However, reportedly interest from the Premier League is now beginning to mount. Aston Villa are desperate for forward reinforcements as the Villans look to replace injured Wesley Moraes and are considering a move, depending on their chase for other strikers.
A hamstring injury to the Canaries' main striker Teemu Pukki means that Daniel Farke and Stuart Webber have sounded out a late move for the former Leeds United loanee and sources believe that Nketiah could now head to Carrow Road.
