As reported by Evening Standard, the one and only Reiss Nelson recently opened up about the upcoming season as the 19 year old attempts to break into the Arsenal first team. Nelson has had a strong pre-season, but either way, it’s going to be tough for him to do so.

Even with that being the case he seems to have a good head on his shoulders, which you always need at this level.

Go on, Reiss

“For me, I just want to take things as they come,” said Nelson. “I went away in Germany and I think I did well. But the main goal for me has always been playing in an Arsenal shirt week in, week out.

It seems that Arsenal could be in for some big squad surgery, well it is needed anyway. The likes of Aaron Ramsey, Danny Welbeck, Petr Cech, Carl Jenkinson, Nacho Monreal and Stephan Lichtsteiner will leave as free agents.

Then there are the likes of Mohamed Elneny, Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Laurent Koscielny and Mesut Ozil who have all been linked with moves away from the north London club.

A limited transfer budget this summer

Despite needing to heavily strengthen their squad this summer, Arsenal’s hierarchy will reportedly only allow £40million to spend this summer. In Premier League terms that is chump change, especially as the Gunners will receive major revenue via the Premier League television deal.

According to the Daily Express, Arsenal are willing to use Calum Chambers, Reiss Nelson and Carl Jenkinson as makeweights in a deal to sign Crystal Palace forward Wilfried Zaha. Reports suggest that the Ivory Coast international is rated in the £80million bracket.

Zaha would be a good signing for Arsenal

The Gunners are reportedly looking to bring in a wide man this summer. Zaha is developing into a very dangerous attacking player and has been the focal point of the Eagles attack for much of the season.

An Arsenal Academy product, Reiss Nelson made his first-team debut under Arsene Wenger in 2017/18, which turned out to have been the Frenchman’s last season in charge. He made 16 appearances that term – quite a decent number for a player only 18 years old at the time, though half of them came in the Europa League.

Following the arrival of Unai Emery to the dugout last summer, Nelson was sent to rack up some experience to Hoffenheim and scored on his debut against Fortuna Dusseldorf. To this day, he has made 24 appearances for the Bundesliga side in all competitions and scored six times.

Reiss Nelson is no doubt one of the most promising youngsters at Arsenal. He enjoyed some cameo appearances for the Gunners before a shock loan move last summer to German club Hoffenheim.

One of the more surprising moves of the winter deadline day 2019 was Arsenal youngster Emile Smith Rowe joining Bundesliga side RB Leipzig on loan until the end of the season.

I have to say that when Smith Rowe’s fellow talented youngster Reiss Nelson joined Hoffenheim on loan in the summer for this season I was surprised, as he looked like he could have played more first-team football.

Many eyebrows were raised among Arsenal supporters when they heard the news that highly-rated youngster Reiss Nelson was leaving in the summer. The move to German club Hoffenheim was only temporary of course, as the winger had signed a new deal prior to his switch to the Bundesliga outfit.

It’s always great to see Gunners thriving and succeeding away from the world of Premier League football, because let’s face it, not everyone is capable of doing great things either at the Emirates or away from it. We’ve seen players come and go without really making much of an impact, but over the years, we haven’t seen too many English stars going abroad and making a name for themselves before returning to Arsenal Football Club. Now, though, it seems as if that’s what is going to transpire with Reiss Nelson.
