Crystal Palace manager Roy Hodgson has denied the transfer rumours linking the club with a swoop for Arsenal winger Reiss Nelson.

The Gunners player is one of the few that could leave North London before the end of the transfer window next week and the Eagles have been touted as one of the clubs that would sign him.

The Crystal Palace boss set the records straight on the potential Reiss Nelson transfer during his pre-match press conference ahead of the Premier League visit to Stamford Bridge.

Roy Hodgson and his Crystal Palace face a tough London Derby clash with the Blues away from home.

According to Hodgson, the club is not interested in Reiss Nelson and that doesn’t mean that the player is not good.

Reiss Nelson seems not to be in the immediate plans of Mikel Arteta who has other attacking options at his disposal.

The Arsenal winger has played twice this season for his team.

His first appearance of the season came in the Community Shield vs Liverpool which ended 1-1 before the Gunners triumphed 5-4 on penalties to win it.

His second and last appearance was in the Carabao Cup clash at Leicester City in the third round. Arsenal beat the Foxes 2-0 away from home to progress into the next round.
