Arsenal youngster Reiss Nelson has been in sensational form since his summer loan switch to German side Hoffenheim. The 18-year-old winger was handed the No. 9 shirt on arrival at Hoffenheim and has already racked up six Bundesliga goals – becoming the youngest non-German to ever reach that figure.
Remarkably, the teenager has achieved this without being a regular starter in Julian Nagelsmann’s side. Nelson has made just four league starts so far this season.

The Gunners will be delighted with the progress their academy product is making whilst out on loan and will be hoping that he can have a similar impact at the Emirates Stadium upon his return to north London.
Arsenal fans are certainly excited about the prospect of seeing Nelson back in red and white soon. After the announcement of the youngster winning the aforementioned monthly accolade, plenty of Gunners fans took to Twitter to congratulate him and celebrate his success…
How well is our boy doing…

It’s going to be unfair next season with Auba, Laca , Ozil and Nelson as a front four.
