Reiss Nelson still dreams of making a career with Arsenal
Arsenal youngster Reiss Nelson has indicated that he is keen to succeed with the north London club despite being loaned out to Hoffenheim for the 2018/19 season. The 18-year-old had initially not been keen on pursuing a temporary stint away from the Emirates Stadium, but he later welcome the opportunity of working under Julian Nagelsmann in the Bundesliga.
Nelson made the breakthrough under former Gunners boss Arsene Wenger during the previous campaign and he happened to impress with his workrate, though he could not contribute on the goal tally. However, with the switch to Hoffenheim, he appears to have worked on the finishing as well and he has already made a great beginning with two goals from just four matches.
Aside from Bundesliga action, the Gunners graduate also has the opportunity to play Champions League football with the German club this term and a strong performance against one of Manchester City, Shakhtar Donetsk, or Lyon during the group stage would undoubtedly catch the eye of Gunners boss Unai Emery. Nelson, who penned a new long-term contract during the summer, has managed 16 appearances for Arsenal to date.
