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.

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.

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.

Hoffenheim have confirmed their interest in Arsenal’s Reiss Nelson, according to various reports.

Manager Julian Nagelsmann, one of the youngest head coaches in Europe, revealed as much publicly. He couldn’t say any more than that because nothing has been agreed yet and there is a lot to be discussed before anything is put on paper.

One of the most important issues to resolve first is whether the youngster would be sold or sign a new contract with Arsenal before leaving on loan, as his current deal expires next summer. His readiness to commit his long-term future to the Gunners was reported back in April, when it became known that Nelson would choose to remain at the Emirates amid interest from the likes of Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain.
