Europe’s topmost clubs like Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) are circling around Arsenal’s ripest catch, 18-year-old Reiss Nelson. The young footballer is bound to be out of contract next year with Emirates Stadium struggling to negotiate a new deal to keep Nelson on the team.
Nelson started playing for Arsenal academy at nine years old where he unveiled his first team in FA Community Shield against Chelsea. Aside from the FA Cup, Nelson also showed up for Arsene Wenger’s team in the Europa League and the Carabao Cup.
Arsenal’s Potential Loss
If Arsenal is unable to produce a contract for Reiss Nelson, the team will have to deal with another loss with Alexis Sanches and Mesut Ozil leaving for Manchester United and a free transfer for Ozil by the end of the season.
19-year-old players Chris Willock and Kaylen Hinds both left Arsenal last year to transfer to Benfica and Wolfsburg respectively. Manchester City’s Jadon Sancho left the team for Borussia Dortmund.
With this at hand, the Premier League academy graduates are being closely monitored by several top European clubs. Due to their growing skill and potential, Premiere League may just need to keep a sharp eye so having known their technical quality, along with the problems they are to encounter in English football.
