Arsenal fans have reacted in good humour after their young starlet Reiss Nelson, out on loan with Hoffenheim, received a nomination for ‘Bundesliga Rookie of the Month’. The award shortlists the three best performing players under the age of 21 in the German top flight, and has been won previously by the likes of Jadon Sancho and Benjamin Pavard.
Gunners supporters, unsurprisingly, have hijacked the vote to ensure that their teenage sensation takes home the coveted award, and are clearly in good spirits as they have one of Europe’s best young talents within their ranks.
The England Under-21 international has been in unbelievable form for Julien Nagelsmann’s side, scoring five goals in just four starts, with those strikes coming from a mere six shots on target. Efficient or what?
In the month of October, the Gunners’ academy graduate scored three goals in just two games, more than any of his teammates, and has helped his adopted side to within touching distance of the Champions League spots.
Let’s take a look at how the Arsenal fans reacted to their prospect’s nomination…

We like you, but no bids will be accepted if you try to sign Reiss.
Not even if you add free beer at Oktoberfest for all Arsenals fans.
