Great News – Reiss Nelson is still an Arsenal Player despite Hoffenheim move

There was consternation amongst Arsenal supporters this week when it was revealed that one of our most promising youngsters, Reiss Nelson, was set to go to Hoffenheim in the Bundesliga. It was believed he was being sold as he had not agreed a new contract with the Gunners, but now it is being revealed that is not the case.

The Metro reported today…

Arsenal will reportedly receive a €500,000 loan fee from Hoffenheim for Reiss Nelson. Nelson has been with Arsenal since 2007 but is set for a temporary move to Hoffenheim as the Gunners look to secure more regular playing time for the 18-year-old attacker.

The England Under-19 international is yet to feature under Unai Emery in the Premier League this term and has been keen to follow close friend Jadon Sancho to Germany.

Nelson will be on loan at Hoffenheim until the end of the 2018/19 campaign and will hope to return to north London with a realistic shot at nailing down a place in Emery’s starting XI.

According to German outlet Kicker, Hoffenheim will pay Arsenal a €500k (£450k) fee for Nelson for the youngster’s season-long loan. Nelson is expected to sign a new contract with the Gunners before departing for Germany.

Nelson has been with the club for over ten years so it would have been a slap in the face to the club if he had left before getting his chance to fulfil his promise and get into the Arsenal first team.

Let’s all hope he has a very proctful year in Germany and he comes back as a budding superstar….

    I wish you well Nelson.. go over there and become a better hazard who can score goals…. I believe in you….. come back and become our creative wing wizard that can score goals…..i trust Nagelsmann to make you better….bless you bro!

    Reiss will be the only Arsenal player playing in the Champions league this system. Should be good e perience for him

  3. Sarmmie

    A loan move for Nelson is the best thing for all sides, add that to the fact that he’ll get to play in the champions league
    Hopefully, he’ll get some playing time and will come back stronger.
    Wishing him all the best

    Good move. Was worried that we were about repeating the Gnabry mistake. Make sure everyone extends b4 any loan deal is finalized.
    Best of luck Reiss, will keep an eye on the Bundesliga cos of you.

      I can’t be sure until he really signs the extension

      We cannot afford to lose another talented young winger, because we lack the good ones

    Is it inserted in the loan deal agreement with Hoffenheim that they should give Nelson a regular starting role first in the Bundelisga to see how he’ll progress to then justify starting him regularly in the Bundesliga if he has progressed very well. And start/play him in the CL.

    The only good thing that I’ve seen in this loan deal of Nelson by Arsenal to Hoffenheim is, Arsenal will first tie him down to a long deal at the club before allowing him to go to Hoffenheim.

    Notwithstanding, I personally don’t support Arsenal’s decision to loan out their proven talent top quality youth team player, Nelson. More so, as it now look Arsenal will be one top quality youth player down in the club’s Europa League campaign squad this season. What is £450k to £500k to Arsenal as to the quality of playing Nelson is likely to bring to the club’s Europa League Cup win charge this season if Arsenal hold on to him and not loan him out but still have him extend his deal at the club.

      Mavididi was a loss, he reminded me of Mane but needed to bring the goalscoring from academy with him. Surprised he didn’t get more opportunities, that’s two quick wide players we could’ve taken a look at this season. Considering our options out there, am surprised.

    2. RSH

      he needs consistent 1st team experience to improve though. Unfortunately we aren’t in the best position to heavily experiment with youngsters. This season at Hoffenheim will do him wonders. I think it’s a great move. And the fact we are loaning him out may hint at us being ready to look for another wide player in Jan.

    That is a relief.
    Although its nice and exciting to sign big name players like Aubameyang and Lacazette it is very satisfying to see young players coming through and establishing themselves as world class players – much like Cesc did.
    I wish himluck….

    Good move for the young man who will hopefully play regularly for an excellent Coach who could manage Arsenal some day.

    If this is true, then well done to Huss.
    Just wish either he or the club would resolve Ramsey’s contract as well.
    That would endure he is earning his “reported” salary whatever that might be.

    I would have liked him to stay and play as our right winger. I rate him higher than Iwobi, Ozil, and Micki on the wing. Let’s hope he goes out there and show everyone what he is capable of. But our bench looks very weak tbh. We all know Micki can be injury prone. Who is gonna replace him on the right wing if he gets injured? Iwobi and Welbeck are more suited to the left wing where they can cut in with the stronger right feet. I don’t support this decision just like I never supported Chambers loan deal
