Arsenal youngster set to make Championship loan move this month

Reiss Nelson is set to leave Arsenal on loan this month, according to reports.

The attacker has struggled for minutes at the Emirates in this campaign even though he is highly-regarded at the club.

He hasn’t started a league game this season, and the last time he played for the club in the competition was in November as a sub.

Arsenal has done well with the players that Mikel Arteta has been fielding and that has made it hard for Nelson to get playing time.

The Englishman needs to play more often for the sake of his career development, and it seems that the Gunners want him to leave them temporarily for the rest of this season.

PA journalist Mark Mann-Bryans, says that the attacker could be set for a move to the Championship just like Emile Smith Rowe did before breaking into the Arsenal first team.

Smith Rowe’s time at Huddersfield Town seems to have developed him well, and Mann-Bryans reckons Arsenal is now considering a similar path for Nelson.

He tweeted: “Arsenal looking into a potential Championship loan move for Reiss Nelson this month.

“His game-time has dried up and development stalled – club clearly saw improvement in (Emile) Smith Rowe following his stint at Huddersfield.

“Could be one that progresses in the coming days.”

    I`d rather send Willian out on loan as the overwhelming consensus I`ve read amongst fans is that Willian is the worst Brazillian since Stevie Wonder shaved his wife`s minge!

    1. Potter says:

      Jokes don’t get any better but I agree Willian seems to be a waste of time space and effort.

    2. Sue says:

      😂😂😂 brilliant!! Good to see you, Le Coq .been far too long. Hope you’re keeping well

      1. Le Coq Monster says:

        All good, Sue, hope you are well X

      If you edit your comment by deleting everything after “out” it would be more to my mindset.

  2. Vinnie2000 says:

    Arteta wants to loan dis Guy but chooses to keep Nketiah and even start him against strong teams..😒😒
    I Pray sentiments and player favouritism doesn’tt drag Arsenal down under MA!!
    Always favours Xhaka, Willian, Nketiah, Pepe, Ceballos above more hungry n talented players.. Annoying mofo..😣😣

    Jo willock to follow

  4. Wyoming says:

    Wise move. Would like to see Reiss get an extended run somewhere.

  5. The Real Vieira Lynn says:

    Just sell the guy already…get something for him before you send him elsewhere, he doesn’t come good and we have to waste more time and money on someone who doesn’t appear to be quite good enough for this level…we have a lot of players who I feel have been kept too long simply because we screwed up so badly with Gnabry so we fear a repeat scenario…difference is anyone who saw Gnabry’s performance at the Olympics, before he left, could see that he had some high level skills, whereas I’ve never seen anything from Reiss or Eddie that would justify those fears…just think of how quickly Saka, Marts and ESR showed something worthy of first team minutes…even Willock, who I’m undecided on, yet leaning towards him being too inconsistent to be a regular starter, has showed glimpses, like in that weird Cup game versus Pool…that’s why it’s been so confounding that they somehow can’t seem to find minutes for Balu or Saliba…this club seems to lack any self-awareness

  6. Joe. S says:

    Nelson, should have been the best of the crop, a much better player than Willocks, Eddie N, although perhaps that’s not saying much. He has been let down by lack of opportunities, injury and inability to convert good runs into scoring chances. Somewhere down the line the coaching department forgot to work on crossing and passing,or perhaps like Walcott he believed that his speed would be enough to succeed.

  7. Wayne says:

    Once again Arteta bias treatment of players is evident. Nelson and Bolagun deserve their chances at Arsenal. But, Arteta, has chosen Willian and Ceballos over them. Arsenal should sell Willian now for anything and Ceballos should return to Real Madrid asap.

  8. Grandad says:

    In my view Nelson , like AMN, has never been given a run in his true position which in his case is on the right wing.With Arteta being obliged to justify the money spent on Pepe and William, a loan would seem to be in the best interests of all concerned and I only hope he goes on to emulate ESR.Potential harbours for Nelson may include Brentford,Derby ,Reading or he may follow in the footsteps of Gnabry to WBA?

  9. Armoury says:

    Willian is wasting that space that could have been occupied by Nelson. Arteta cannot fully utilize his resources

  10. amo says:

    Nelson is a good player including those Arsenal kids who were beating teams at the youth level. it is good that he is going on loan and maybe possibly move on to another club. what does Arsenal really stand for in terms of football nowadays? ten years from now what could i remember it for? no flair, no team work, we are not winning etc get all the senior players off the books and start a new.. a project of three years at the minimum. I want to see sizzling football full of creativity and swagger not this boring animal called Arsenal!
