Reiss Nelson wants to become an Arsenal legend

Reiss Nelson wants to become an Arsenal legend Arsenal youngster Reiss Nelson has admitted that he wants to become a Gunners legend, according to a report on the Evening Standard. The forward is currently on loan to German Bundesliga side Hoffenheim and he has been in great goalscoring form. The England under-21 international has managed to find the back of the net six times in seven matches for Hoffenheim, which saw him awarded the Bundesliga ‘rookie of the month’ award for last month. The 18-year-old signed a new long-term deal with Arsenal before heading out on loan, and he is keen to return and play games for the club that he loves. When speaking to BBC Sport, he said: “Arsenal are my boyhood club. I’ve been with them since I was eight, so that’s 10 years. I just want to go back there stronger because at the time I was at Arsenal I was 16, 17 and I didn’t feel confident.” “I didn’t think I was a man, but now I’m feeling stronger and I think a couple more months or even a year in Hoffenheim will make me strong and give me the belief and confidence to go back to Arsenal and do very good there.” “I want to be an Arsenal legend. And, for England, it’s the best. You can’t beat playing for your country I don’t think.” Nelson is one of Arsenal’s most talented academy graduates and boss Unai Emery knows that the more competitive football he plays in Germany, the better he will get.

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.
