Arsenal fans delighted with Nelson contract news

Arsenal defender Reiss Nelson has told the London Evening Standard that he is close to signing a new contract at the Emirates Stadium.

The 18-year-old’s current deal with the Gunners will expire next summer, and it has been suggested that Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain are interested in signing him.

Nelson made his full Premier League debut for Arsenal against Southampton at the weekend, and it would be fair to say that there is a lot of excitement surrounding the teenager, who is capable of operating in a number of different positions.

There had been some concern amongst Arsenal fans when it came to the future of Nelson, but the latest news has been well received.

Indeed, a number of the club’s supporters – who were also pleased with the performance of one of the team’s under-fire stars at the weekend – have taken to social media to reveal their delight as the youngster nears a contract extension with the Gunners.
