Reiss Nelson has admitted that he doesn’t know what the future will hold for him at Arsenal (via The Mirror).
For those who haven’t followed the Bundesliga this season, you may be unaware that two young English players are making a big impression in Germany.
One is a one-time Arsenal target, Jadon Sancho but the other is the on-loan Gunners star, Reiss Nelson who is currently making waves for Hoffenheim.
The 18-year-old is on a season-long loan deal at the club and has scored four goals in all competitions.
“I’m liking the Bundesliga,” Nelson admitted in a recent interview. “There’s a lot of top, top defenders that you come across.
“It was always going to be a challenge so when I got the offer to come out here I was excited, knowing it was going to be such a big challenge for me.

“As a person and as a player, I wanted to take the next step.
“At the moment I’m very happy here. I’m playing, I’m scoring, but I’m an Arsenal player at the end of the day, so I have to stay and do my job here, then wherever football takes me I’ll go.”
Arsenal would be foolish not to consider Reiss Nelson as a player to consider for first-team selection once his loan at Hoffenheim ends in the summer. If he continues to play well and put in performances as he has been, we could see him starting for the Gunners in twelve months.
