Name: Reiss Nelson
Made Senior Debut?: Yes (Arsenal)
Current National Level: England U21 International
Last Season Summary
2018/19 – Nelson came on leaps and bounds last season whilst on loan at Hoffenheim. Pace, trickery, an eye for a goal and accurate passing are all well within his capabilities and he was only too happy to show the Bundesliga last season. Being used much as an impact sub, Nelson only managed 5 starts from 23 appearances, but the youngster managed to bag 7 goals in the process averaging a goal every 92 mins.
Footy Files expectations this Season
2019/20 – This season, the rumours are that he will be stepping up to train with the first team. Whilst Reiss could provide Arsenal with cover for the wingers, we really think it would be beneficial for him to get a loan move where he is guaranteed first team football. However, given the opportunity at Arsenal, he may just give Emery a selection headache.
