Arsenal fans can’t wait to see Reiss Nelson under Mikel Arteta next season

It is appearing more and more likely that Mikel Arteta will be named as Arsene Wenger’s successor at Arsenal in the coming days, and Gunners fans are already excited to see the Spaniard work with exciting young forward Reiss Nelson.

The 18-year-old enjoyed a breakthrough campaign in the first team after making 16 appearances in all competitions for the north London outfit, including a start at Old Trafford in the Premier League last month.

The versatile attacker, who can play on the wing or through the middle, will be hoping to be a more regular fixture in the XI next term, and Arteta could work closely with him like he has done with Leroy Sane and Raheem Sterling at Manchester City.

Arsenal supporters, who have identified the Hector Bellerin replacement they want this summer, were quick to have their say on the potential link-up between the duo via social media, and while one said he would get “Salahesque numbers under Arteta next season”, another said “Mikel Arteta gonna make Reiss Nelson an absolute beast”.
