North London giants Arsenal have reportedly ended the hopes of German Bundesliga side TSG Hoffenheim over the permanent transfer of English forward Reiss Nelson.
The 18-year-old has been impressive in the colours of Hoffenheim since he joined the Champions League campaigners on a season-long loan deal during this summer’s transfer window.
Reiss Nelson took his season’s tally to four goals after he scored a brace at the weekend.
The England U21 international netted twice as he helped his side come from behind to beat newly promoted side Nurnberg 3-1 away from home.
According to a report from renowned German news outlet Bild via talksport, North London giants Arsenal have told TSG Hoffenheim is not available for a permanent transfer to the club and that he’s a big part of the future at Arsenal.
The North Londoners have also been following his progress in Germany.
TSG Hoffenheim were hoping that Reiss Nelson would follow in the footsteps of fellow English youngster Jadon Sancho who left England for the German Bundesliga last summer permanently and has been a hit in Germany.
Sancho left Manchester City for Borussia Dortmund during last summer’s transfer window and he has already made his England debut on the back of impressive displays for the German side.
