North London outfit Arsenal youngster Reiss Nelson has pointed to Callum Hudson-Odoi as the Chelsea player who inspires him.
Callum Hudson-Odoi has seen only a few appearances in the Chelsea team but that did not stop his call-up to the England senior national team under manager Gareth Southgate.
Reiss Nelson is currently on a loan deal with the German Bundesliga outfit Hoffenheim and has shown good quality which is already catching attention from a number of teams but there is no way the North London outfit will want to part ways with him.
The Arsenal teenager stated that he has played against Callum Hudson-Odoi in the youth league, noting that they are friends and have gotten along with each other for a long time.
He stressed that Callum Hudson-Odoi has been inspiring as he always makes a player push harder for a bigger level, noting that his call-up to the senior national team is another big inspiration for him.
However, there are suggestions that the North London outfit could ask Reiss Nelson to return to the Emirates Stadium as he has shown he is ripe enough to compete at a bigger stage and in a big side like Arsenal.
