Reiss Nelson

Arsenal forward Reiss Nelson is reportedly on the radar of England manager Gareth Southgate after his impressive start to the new season.

The 18-year-old is currently on a season-long loan at German Bundesliga side TSG Hoffenheim and he has been in sensational form for the Champions League campaigners.

According to the report from the Daily Mirror via footballfancast, Reiss Nelson could be in line for a call-up to the England national team ahead of the next international break in November following his impressive form for Hoffenheim this season.

Reiss Nelson has had a meteoric rise in his football career since he broke into the Arsenal team at the start of last season under former Gunners boss Arsene Wenger.

Unai Emery replaced the 69-year-old Frenchman as the Arsenal manager in the summer and he allowed Reiss Nelson to join Hoffenheim on a season-long loan deal just before the end of the transfer window in August.

The young forward netted twice at the weekend in the league clash at newly promoted side Nurnberg to take his season’s tally to four goals.

His brace in the 3-1 win over Nurnberg prompted talks of a permanent move to the club which was reportedly turned down by Arsenal.
