Video: Arsenal loanee beats offside trap to earn assist in ECL clash

Arsenal loanee Reiss Nelson helped Feyernoord to a 3-2 victory over Marseille with a key assist tonight to leave them on the brink of the Europa Conference League final.

The 22 year-old has played plenty of football on loan in Holland this season, and while he already has eight goals in Europe so far this term, he turned creator this time around to help his side to take a 2-0 lead in the opening half.

It remains to be seen whether Reiss has done enough to convince Mikel Arteta that he is worthy of a role at the Emirates for next season, but he would likely be welcome back at his current club if another loan spell was to be an option.

Could Nelson grow enough with the experience in the Dutch Eridivisie and the ECL be the kickstarter to get our youngster to finally meet his potential?

  1. He made 10 contributions in 29 games (not full 90 mins in each), which is statistically decent. He seems to have improved with time through out the season. People forget that he is only 22.
    He can be a squad player, especially in case Pepe has left. Academy has many talents such as Omar and Flores ..etc but they lack experience and may need to go on loan especially if Arsen reach CL rather the other less powerful competitions.
    I wish him good luck.

  2. If the lad was from some other club, we would be pleading to sign him for some 30-40M. Bring him back for the initial rounds of the League Cup, FA cup, UCL. Beside Mikel is there for a year to guide and mentor him. He cannot do more worse than the 72M flop, who gives away free kicks near our box and can neither press nor dribble nor pass nor score in the EPL.

    1. @Loose Cannon
      OJT coach hasn’t mentored or guided any of the current youngsters. What makes you think he’s about to start now?

  3. Extend his contract and allow his development to continue, he has shown signs of being a good premier league player

  4. Clubs will now be interested in signing him so his contract should be extended then another long term loan will do both parties good,this time to a pl club.
