Eddie Nketiah of Arsenal, Callum Hudson-Odoi of Chelsea, Tariq Lamptey of Brighton, and the Inaki brothers are among players, that the GFA are engaging in talks over a potential nationality switch.

According to Freddy Twum, who is the personal trainer of Eddie Nketiah stated the forward will join the Black Stars at a point in his career.

Responding to a question by host Joe Debrah on whether Ghanaians should be expecting Eddie Nketiah to play for the Black Stars, he said,

“At some point, Eddie Nketiah will come but I hope it will be before the World Cup. When he comes it will really help the Black Stars. Jordan Ayew is fading out and if (Nketiah) comes it will really help us.”
