Nelson discusses his plans for the future

Nelson discusses his plans for the future Arsenal winger Reiss Nelson has discussed his plans for the future in a recent interview on the official Bundesliga website. The England Under-21 international is currently enjoying a loan spell with Hoffenheim and has established himself as an important player for the German outfit. Nelson is held in high esteem at the Emirates and it’s believed that Arsenal want to retain his services following his temporary spell with Hoffenheim. The 18-year-old was quizzed on his future in recent times and was asked about the chances of him staying put at his loan club beyond the allocated one-season spell. Nelson was coy to make assurances over his plans but reiterated his happiness at Hoffenheim. The winger said: “At the moment I’m very happy here. I’m playing, I’m scoring, but I’m an Arsenal player at the end of the day, so I have to stay and do my job here, then wherever football takes me I’ll go.” At the end of August, Nelson put pen to paper on a new long-term contract at Arsenal prior to his loan move, again indicating that he remains a player who is firmly in Unai Emery’s plans for the years to come.

Why the name Nelson 's Eye ? Is it because the best cuts come from the rear, and Nelson was a Rear Admiral? Or is it because Horatio symbolizes everything we hope to achieve in the domination/franchise market? Well in truth, it’s none of these things. Our founder has long since disappeared into

Arsenal boss Unai Emery has today spoken about loan star Reiss Nelson, as well as addressing talk of an early recall for the Gunners youngster.

The 18-year old winger joined Bundesliga outfit Hoffenheim in the summer on a season-long loan, and has excelled in his early outings for the club.

Having faced fierce competition at the Emirates Stadium this season, Germany was lined up as a good destination for the England Under-21s international, with fellow Englishmen Jadon Sancho and Ademola Lookman also flourishing in the German top flight over the last 12 months.

And since joining Hoffenheim, Nelson has been in red hot form, scoring five goals and assisting one in just six Bundesliga appearances.

England considering Nelson call-up

England considering Nelson call-up Gareth Southgate is considering a call-up for Arsenal youngster Reiss Nelson, who is on loan in the Bundesliga. According to The Mirror, England are potentially ready to give Nelson his first senior call-up after his impressive start to the season. Nelson joined Hoffenheim on a season-long loan from Arsenal in an attempt to find more regular game-time at senior level. The 18-year-old has had a flying start to life in Germany, with five goals in six Bundesliga appearances this season. The teen made 16 first-team appearances for Arsenal last season, with only three of them coming in the Premier League. Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho was called up to England’s last squad, which gave Nelson hope that Southgate would give him a chance if he continued to impress for Hoffenheim in the Bundesliga this year. He has been doing that, and now looks set for his first ever senior call to the England team.

Player Profile Name Reiss Nelson Born. An exciting prospect with quick feet and an eye for goal, 2017/18 proved valuable for Reiss’s development, as he made his first-team debut in the Community Shield win over Chelsea, then featured in the Premier League, Europa League, FA Cup and EFL Cup.

Talking ahead of tonight’s Europa League clash with Sporting Lisbon, Emery confirmed the club are keeping an eye on young Nelson, although it is too early to talk about a recall for the forward. Emery said:

“He can take responsibility, minutes and confidence in a team where he can play more.”

“Then the objective with him is to come back with us and grow with this experience. My experience in Spain and France is that with this loan the player can achieve this.”

“With Reiss, we are very happy with him at the moment. We follow him every match. We are thinking about how he can help us in the future.”

When pressed on whether it was likely that Nelson could have his loan spell cut short to make an early return to London, Emery continued:

“At the moment we don’t speak about that.”

Arsenal-linked Woodman ready to force way out of St James' Park.
Freddie Woodman is not happy at Newcastle. The goalkeeper has not found a way into the first team, with Martin Dubravka keeping a strong grip on the gloves in Rafael Benitez’s side. As a result, the 21-year-old is preparing to try and force a move away from Tyneside in the January transfer window, according to reports. Woodman has not featured in the senior team so far this season, and is desperate to get regular playing time. However, fellow Magpies shot-stopper Rob Elliot is also tipped with a move away from St James’ Park, and rumour has it that Benitez is only prepared to let one of the two leave. It is likely that Woodman’s departure would only be a temporary exit, in what would be his fifth loan chance with Newcastle since joining the ‘Toon in 2014. The 2017 U20 World Cup hero has previously spent time at Hartlepool, Crawley, Kilmarnock and Aberdeen. Arsenal’s interest in the gloveman was reported last month, and it remains to be seen if the Gunners take a chance on the Londoner. However, given the context, it seems as though a move from Newcastle to Arsenal would be a case of “out the frying pan and into the oven” for the minutes-starved Woodman.
