Incoming Ghana Forward Eddie Nketiah Enjoys Stunning Body Transformation
- English-born Ghanaian forward Eddie Nketiah has come a long way since his days as a skinny teen
- Eddie Nketiah is now a lean mean goalscoring machine who bulked up during the first lockdown in 2020
- The soon-to-be free agent reached double figures in goals for the first time for Arsenal this season
Eddie Nketiah is enjoying a ridiculous body transformation over recent years from a skinny youngster into a hulking Premier League striker.
As a teenager, the 22-year-old Arsenal forward was often called too skinny by his coaches.
But through the years, Nketiah went from lanky striker to powerhouse forward thanks to a strict exercise regime.
Nketiah certainly flexed his notably bigger muscles in the top-flight this term for Arsenal, scoring in Sunday’s final day 5-1 victory over Everton.
The English-born Ghana finished the season in the double digits for the first time in his career.

Speaking previously about his physical change, the Nketiah said, quoted by thescottishsun:
“During lockdown, I worked really hard on getting bigger and better on the ball.
“I’ve used the time well and it’s good that people can see the hard work.
“It’s something I wanted to do. As you go through the levels, it gets a lot harder physically so to be able to show your technique, you need that strength to cope with it.
