Arsenal needs a lot of positions sorting out this summer, for starters, we need to find a replacement for Aaron Ramsey and secondly, we certainly need a player that can do a better job than what Mesut Ozil has been doing.
Now imagine if we could get a player that could do both jobs, that knows the Arsenal way and culture, that has experience playing in the Champions League and has scored goals in one of Europe’s top domestic leagues.
Now, that would be a nice player to have right? well, what if he was also just a teenager that costs nothing and has a very low wage in comparison to almost every single player that we have been linked with, if not every single player.
A player like that, with all those attributes, is certainly someone we must do everything in our power to add to our squad.
Well, we already have a player like that on our books and that is young Reiss Nelson.
The 19-year-old was on loan last season with Hoffenheim who finished ninth in the Bundesliga, he scored seven goals from just 19 league appearances and played in five Champions League matches.
He possesses lightning pace, something that both Aaron Ramsey and Mesut Ozil especially lack, he does not wander around when he loses the ball but battles to get it back and he is very versatile, he can effectively play on the wing or through the centre.
This is a young player with Champions League experience, that has played in a top European league, that has a nose for goal and from what I can see is just as good, if not better, than most of the players we are being targeted with, he costs nothing and his wages are low, what else could we ask for?
For me, it is a no brainer, Reiss Nelson should be promoted to the first team and be considered a first team starter.
