Arsenal youngster is the subject of interest from Turkey

Fotospor via Sportwitness reports that Reiss Nelson is the subject of transfer interest from Turkish side, Besiktas.

The Englishman has previously enjoyed a period of football outside of England when he joined Hoffenheim on loan for the 2018/2019 season.

He wasn’t sent out on loan this season by the Gunners as they looked to integrate him into their first team.

He was given some chances to impress for the club last season and Mikel Arteta has continued to trust him.

However, he is behind Nicolas Pepe in the pecking order at the moment at that might make him consider a temporary move away from the Emirates for more first-team chances.

If he does consider a move, then he will not struggle to find suitors as the report suggests.

It claims that Besiktas are looking to add wingers to their team as they start their season with the Champions League qualifiers, and they have made the Englishman their top target.

It claims that the Turkish side is so keen to land him that they will do all that they can to get the deal over the line.

Arteta will be reshaping his team this summer by making some signings, the Spaniard has just landed Willian who is expected to provide even more competition on the wing and that might force out Nelson.

    I do hope that we will not be making the kind of mistake that was made with the sale of Gnabry.
    It seems to me that we headed in that direction with Ainsley and Reiss.

    Hope this is just a rumour. Perhaps a loan but Nelson still has bags of potential. If Willian plays behind the front three, Nelson will get plenty of game time and push Pepe.

    As an aside, Arsenal fans give up on youth way too quickly and then are just as quick to criticise the club for selling young players like Gnabry and Reine-Adelaide

      Trudeau, not all of us. I think a loan deal for Nelson would be advantageous for both player and Arsenal.

      1. ClassyGunner says:

        Loan would be great but not to Turkey me thinks.

  3. RSH says:

    he’d benefit greatly from steady game time. I dont think hes close to ready for EPL. If a Championship team wants to loan him instead that would be more beneficial. He’s already been abroad and not played much.

  4. Grandad says:

    He may well become the first”casualty” of the Willian signing as he is now third in the queue for the right wing berth.There are times when I feel he is a real talent but he tends to flatter to deceive and with Saka and Martinelli in the wings a season on loan to a good footballing side like Brentford, would seem to make sense all round.

    1. ClassyGunner says:

      All indications point to Willian will play centrally.

    Nelson is good when he is fit

  6. apangu iddi amin says:

    LOAN IS OK BUT NOT TO TURKEY AT LIST IN SPAIN OR GERMAN.

  7. Gooner 90 says:

    Nelson needs to be moved to a better league like spain or france cos he has to develop into that monster and return to compete with the established players.Championship is not an option.
