Arsenal’s summer signing Sead Kolasinac has revealed the youth player who has impressed him most is Reiss Nelson (via Arsenal.com).
It’s fair to say that Sead Kolasinac has been a popular signing with Arsenal supporters since his summer move from Schalke.
The Bosnian is developing into something of a cult hero among fans and now Kolasinac has revealed which Arsenal players have impressed him most with one youth player, in particular, impressing him most.
“You realise from his style of play that he’s really talented,” Kolasinac said of Reiss Nelson. “He’s quick, a very strong dribbler and he has everything you need as an offensive player.
“He’s still young and has a lot to learn, also academically.”
Nelson featured for the Arsenal first-team during pre-season and has impressed with the Under-23 side so far this season. It’s fair to say that Kolasinac is a fan.

“It’s good for him to have more experienced players around who can take care of him, like Mesut, who plays in his position, or other players too. I’m very impressed by him.”
It’s good to see that Reiss Nelson is having an impression on some of the more senior places. It’s also a positive sign that Sead Kolasinac is fitting in well at the club and is impressed with the way things are. Let’s hope the pair can play together in the Arsenal first-team at some point this year.
