Reiss Nelson is set to be offered a new contract by Arsenal with his current deal at the Emirates set to expire at the end of June.
Nelson has made 11 appearances in all competitions for the Gunners this season, scoring three times, with one of those goals coming in Arsenal’s dramatic 3-2 league win over Bournemouth at the start of March.
Fabrizio Romano has reported that Arteta is keen to keep Nelson at the club, who has been part of the club’s first team for six years, making 59 appearances in that time.
Romana also said: I understand negotiations are currently underway between Arsenal and Reiss Nelson representatives for a contract extension. His current deal expires in June. Mikel Arteta would be happy to keep Reiss, while more European clubs are showing interest in potential free transfer.
Arsenal begin talk over a new contract for winger who is out of contract this summer
The winger spent two seasons out on loan from 2018 to 2022 with Hoffenheim and Feyernoord for whom he scored a combined 11 goals, so his time abroad will have certainly boosted Mikel Arteta’s trust in him.
