Crystal Palace looks the perfect destination for Reiss Nelson

Patrick Vieira interested in Arsenal man

Former Arsenal midfielder and legend Patrick Vieira is looking to raid the Gunners, to strengthen his current team Crystal Palace.

The Eagles are undergoing through their own summer overhaul, after an astonishing 15 players were under contract until June 30th only.

Palace have already brought in the likes of Joachim Anderson, Marc Guehi, Conor Gallagher and highly rated youngster Michael Olise from Championship side Reading.

But their summer work is far from over, with Vieira helping the club in giving his own personal inputs. Since the Frenchman took over, Palace has been linked to Vieira’s former club Arsenal’s Ainsley Maitland-Niles and Eddie Nketiah.

Now they have set their sights on winger Reiss Nelson, who has two years left on his current deal at the Emirates Stadium.

According to The Sun, Nelson tops Eagles’ list for a new wide man and are willing to bring in the Hale End graduate on a season-long loan.

Palace have just one Premier League loan spot left after having secured the services of Conor Gallagher from Chelsea. They are believed to be convinced that Nelson is the right player to expend the last remaining loan league spot.

The 21-year-old has made 47 appearances for Arsenal scoring four goals and recording the same number of assists.

In the 2018/19 season, as an 18-year-old, Nelson made the switch to German club Hoffenheim, where he made 29 appearances. He quickly won the hearts of the fans with his agility and an eye for a goal.

In the 2019/20 season, he returned to the Emirates Stadium and made an impressive 24 appearances in all competitions. Many believed that it was a turning point of his career at Arsenal.

However, the arrival of Willian from Chelsea severely impacted his minutes, as he barely featured for them in the last campaign.

Thus, a move away from Arsenal is not out of equation naturally, despite the club offering him fresh terms this summer.

The club’s supporters would just wonder what could have been if their talented winger’s minutes would have not been hampered by a certain Brazilian.

    What a wonderful outcome it would be if Vieria could and would take the players listed to PALACE. As my second favourite and local team , I always want PALACE to win, UNLESS playing us of course.

    I have not completely given up as yet on Nelson making the grade, as I see it more as psychological reasons rather than lack of raw talent. Confidence and a real extended chance in a first team could, I stress, COULD,(which does not necessarily mean “will”) still make the grade.

    With the others though, I’d just like them gone, as I SEE NO ROLE FOR THEM WITH US, IF WE ARE TO PROPERLY PROGRESS.
    AMN is a half decent player but simply below the level we need to progress and EDDIE is simply too regularly ineffective at the level we need.
    Finally, I’d love to foist all our other deadwood onto dear old Paddy too, just to get them gone, even to my second favourite team. Though I’d far rather foist them onto Chelski or Spuds.

      Playing week-in, week-out without having to worry about losing their place, undeservedly, in a team will do a lot of good to these youngsters – Nelson, AMN and Nketiah. But, our management must make the right decisions that benefit our club, as all these players have less than 2 years left in their current contract.

    So does arteta as Patrick understudy because he’s not good enough for arsenal

    His minutes habe been hampered by an overpaid lazy brazilian, but also by MA ! He is the coach, the one who said many times he want this and that about motivation and will from his player and do the opposite with some because HE made the mistake to bring them.

    Extend Nelson, send to loan (Palace) for 2 years. Thats stability for him and hopefully playing time.
