Nketiah previously credited his gym routine during lockdown for helping him muscle his way into the Arsenal first-team.
The 23-year-old star has continued to work hard behind the scenes to build muscle and develop his strength.
The difference in Nketiah’s body has been highlighted by ESPN – who compared pictures from 2019 and 2022.
During a short clip posted on Twitter, Chris Varnavas – Director of Athletic Development Club – explained how he had helped Nketiah.
Varnavas told ESPN: ‘He’s [Nketiah] one of the best athletes we’ve got on our books in terms of his attitude and commitment. He’s just on another level.
‘His goal was to build a bit of muscle, build some strength and work on his athleticism. So, like his strength, his speed and his power.
‘So, yeah, we sat down with the family, with himself and we put a plan together. What we do in the gym, we transfer it onto the pitch. That’s the most important thing.
‘You saw the other day, he had a good amount of strength to kind of get hold of the defender but also be agile enough to turn efficiently and score an amazing goal as well.

‘So, I am really happy with his progress so far and the opportunity he’s been given at the moment. I definitely can see him staying at the highest level really.’
Arteta has been equally as impressed with Nketiah. Speaking after Arsenal’s 3-0 win on Monday, he said: ‘[Nketiah] showed great composure. He’s a great finisher, the timing of his runs and the decision making.
The Arsenal manager went on to add: ‘His [Nketiah’s] understanding, his work rate, I think he’s getting better and better.’
