Eddie Nketiah has told Arsenal that he wants to leave the club when his contract expires next summer, after rejecting a new deal at the Emirates.
The Athletic reports that the striker was offered a contract extension on Tuesday, only to turn it down a day later.
The 22-year-old's motivation to leave is due to a lack of game time in north London rather than any financial reasons.
In total, Nketiah has scored 15 goals in 67 first-team appearances for the Gunners, making his debut in a Europa League match away at BATE Borisov in September 2017.
He spent the first half of the 2019/20 season on loan at Leeds, where he scored five goals in 19 appearances across all competitions for the West Yorkshire side.
If Nketiah does not move on January, then he will hope to get more chances to impress when Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang departs for the African Cup of Nations.
This may mean that he remains at Arsenal until the summer, before securing a move elsewhere.
The striker was close to moving to Crystal Palace last year, before the deal broke down.
Nketiah will be hoping to get more game time when the Gunners play Manchester United at Old Trafford on Thursday night.
