Transfer guru Fabrizio Romano has claimed that Arsenal attacker Reiss Nelson is a wanted man with Dutch side Feyenoord interested in his services.
The Englishman can barely get a game at Arsenal. He is nowhere near the top of Mikel Arteta’s pecking order, and that will make his life very difficult if he chooses to stay at the Emirates beyond the end of the transfer window
Nelson has entered the final two years of his contract. He is yet to agree a new deal at Arsenal, which puts him on the transfer list this summer – either on loan or on a permanent deal away from North London.
Feyenoord want Arsenal winger Reiss Nelson
The Eredivisie outfit are on the market looking for a new winger. They were heavily linked with a move for Manchester United youngster Amad Diallo, but he suffered an injury in training, which put an end to a potential transfer.
With less than 48 hours left in the transfer window, Feyenoord will have to act quick. Nelson is someone they are considering and Romano has hinted that a transfer decision could be made this morning.
The 21-year-old is extremely talented. He is rapid, is an excellent dribbler and his shooting is not too bad either. He could be a star in the Eredivisie, especially under the guidance of a former Arsenal captain.
Reiss under Robin van Persie?
Ex-Arsenal skipper van Persie is currently the technical coach of Feyenoord’s first time and is also the assistant manager of their youth team.
Gooners don’t really like the Dutchman because of what he did, but the one thing nobody can deny is his quality as an attacker. If Nelson does join Feyenoord on loan, he will have the opportunity to work with and learn from van Persie.
That’s not bad at all for Arsenal considering that he could improve considerably under our former skipper. However, the Gunners should make sure to extend his deal to prevent him from entering the final year of his contract next year – something we let van Persie do all those years ago.
