Reports suggest that Reiss Nelson is set to sign a new deal at Arsenal before moving to Hoffenheim on loan (via Bild).
Reiss Nelson is highly thought of at Arsenal but there has been growing concern over his failure to sign a new deal at the club.
The 18-year-old’s current contract is set to expire at the end of the season but was optimistic about the prospect of signing a new deal several months ago.
“It is a big achievement to sign for a big club like Arsenal so I’m just delighted with the contract and hopeful can sign it soon,” Nelson said back in April.
Well, he hasn’t yet signed that deal but it appears as if he may do so soon.
Reports suggest that Nelson is set to sign a new deal at the Emirates before heading to Hoffenheim on a season-long loan.

He would join another young English player, Jadon Sancho who moved from Manchester City to Borussia Dortmund last year.
Reiss Nelson is a hugely talented player who can’t quite break into the Arsenal first team. His performances in the cup competitions last season were hugely impressive and, hopefully, this loan move will be the perfect thing for him.
