'Did wonders for Odegaard': Some Arsenal fans pray that Hale End talent joins this club on loan
Arsenal winger Reiss Nelson is reportedly a target for Feyenoord heading into the final hours of the transfer window.
According to Fabrizio Romano, the 21-year-old attacker is on the list of players the Dutch giants are targetting. Feyenoord were close to signing Amad Diallo.
However, as per Fabrizio Romano, a deal fell apart as the Ivorian teenager was injured in training for Manchester United. Nelson is now being seen as an alternative for Feyenoord.
With the attacker unlikely to be part of Mikel Arteta’s first-team plans this season, a departure from the Emirates seems likely for Nelson. The Hale End academy graduate hardly played for the senior squad last campaign.
With Nelson’s contract expiring next summer, as well, there’s a chance that Feyenoord could attempt to sign the attacker on a full-time basis. There has been little talk of Arsenal handing the youngster a new deal.
Indeed, at 21, Nelson needs to be playing regular first-team football, and Feyenoord could provide the England youth star with that opportunity for next season.
And on social media, Arsenal fans are very much on board with Nelson heading over to the Netherlands for the season to join Feyenoord. Holland is a great country for young players to develop.
Here’s what some Arsenal fans had to say about Nelson potentially joining Feyenoord on loan on Twitter…
