Bundesliga striker Nelson announces ‘im ready’ to make it at Arsenal next season
On-loan Hoffenheim forward Reiss Nelson has admitted that he will be looking to break into the Arsenal side when he returns to the Emirates at the end of the season.
With all the top-class talent that Unai Emery had at his disposal at the beginning of the season, Nelson made the smart decision to leave the Emirates during last summer’s transfer window and look for some regular game time with the Bundesliga side, and he has impressed during his time in Germany.
There have been highs and lows for Nelson away from Emirates Stadium however,, including six goals and punishment for a breach of club rules, but the experience has been productive on the whole and many Gunners fans cant help but rave about the potential on the young man.
And now that the season is coming towards its end, Nelson believes he is better placed to force his way into Unai Emery’s plans, with the England U21 international telling The Sun of his future ambition: “If I wasn’t aiming to break into the Arsenal first team, that wouldn’t be the correct mindset.
“I need to go there with that mindset of breaking into that team.
“I’ve done a year loan in Germany which has had ups and downs, but I’m going to be ready for next season. I want to get to the very top.”
Here is what we think.
Nelson is a very talented young man and has the ability to make an impact at the Gunners if he is given a chance under Emery, especially since the Spanish boss is reportedly lining up a number of potential summer signings.
Emery wants to add a third striker to the squad to keep his top two on their shoes, so rather than splash the cash on a forward that may not get used to the premier League, Emery should just give the lad a chance to shine.
