Arsenal fans excited for the future after Reiss Nelson comments

After enjoying a successful loan spell at Bundesliga side Hoffenheim last season, many at Arsenal would have hoped Reiss Nelson could return to the Emirates as a far improved player.

The 19-year-old’s final outing of a long campaign saw him win and convert a penalty in England U21s dramatic 3-3 draw with Croatia in the U21 European Championships, and the winger later revealed that he would be heading back to the Gunners for the new season.

Per The Times, he said: “I want to go back to Arsenal & play. I’m more mature now. Hoffenheim made me grow as a person. I’m Arsenal through & through. All my family support Arsenal. That’s an interaction I have with the fans. It’s good. They support the young talent coming up through.”

After hearing Nelson’s comments, many Gunners fans took to Twitter to reveal their excitement at seeing one of the club’s promising academy products essentially commit his future to the club.

Indeed, loads of supporters of the north London side expressed their hope that Unai Emery would finally give the winger a chance in the first-team and declared him a “ray of hope” after a disappointing end to the campaign last season.
