Arsenal winger Reiss Nelson could be surplus to requirements this summer as a breakthrough continues to evade him
Arsenal are preparing to offload Reiss Nelson when the transfer market reopens this summer, according to reports.
Nelson has made nine appearances for the Gunners in all competitions so far this season, but finds himself below the likes of Nicolas Pepe, Emile Smith-Rowe, Martin Odegaard, Bukayo Saka and Gabriel Martinelli in the pecking order.
Only two of his appearances this season have came in the Premier League, totalling just 69 minutes of action in November.
Nelson featured in 22 games last term, having spent the 2018/19 campaign on loan at Hoffenheim in the Bundesliga, where he managed seven goals in 23 league games and showcased his potential.
The 21-year-old is under contract in north London until 2023, but given player value usually significantly drops with 12 months remaining on a deal, he could be set for pastures new this summer.
There’s likely to be no shortage of suitors for the winger, with Hoffenheim potentially interested in taking him back to Germany, while you’d assume Premier League teams will be monitoring the situation closely.
