'Gnabry take 2': Arsenal fans react to reports Palace, Brighton and Brentford want Reiss Nelson
Arsenal midfielder Reiss Nelson is reportedly wanted by Crystal Palace, Brighton, and Brentford, and Gunners fans have been reacting on social media.
Nelson is out of contract next summer and has yet to put pen to paper on any sort of new deal with the club. Indeed, it is believed he is ignoring Arsenal’s offers at the moment, as he weighs up his future.
CBS Sports have claimed that three Premier League sides like Nelson, including Patrick Vieira’s Crystal Palace.
Nelson had started to make an impact on the first-team initially under Arteta. But since that spell, he’s fallen down the pecking order and struggled for regular appearances.
Arsenal fans discuss Reiss Nelson
Nelson appears to be falling foul of the now famed Arteta and Edu rebuild.
There doesn’t seem to be a place for him the squad, and like Joe Willock, it’s likely he’ll end up moving on regardless. The fear for Arsenal fans, it seems, is that he goes on to be a superstar.
Calls on Twitter are demanding the club tie him down to a new deal before loaning him out. Others, meanwhile, feel letting him go is a mistake entirely.
Here, then, is what some Arsenal fans had to say as interest in Reiss Nelson emerged.
This would be a huge mistake.. IMO he’s just taking a little more tome to adjust to the physicality of the PL.
he will be a huge huge player one day, talent is clear to see.

Extension and send him to Palace please

Thanks to Artetas obsession with Willian we’ve pushed out this guy! This will be one of those Gnabry type situation we might regret later. Similar situation with Willock where Elneny is ahead of him. How!
