Arsenal youngster Reiss Nelson has been linked away from the Emirates Stadium this summer transfer window but that is yet to happen despite being linked with clubs.

From all indications, the young attacker cannot find playing time at the Emirates Stadium with the first team because of the competition in the team and the presence of Willian and Bukayo Saka, amongst others.

Crystal Place was thought to be the destination of Reiss Nelson on a season-long loan term but the words of manager Roy Hodgson have indicated otherwise after dismissing claims that his team wants to sign the Arsenal youngster on loan.

According to him, there has been no conversation at the club for the signature of Reiss Nelson and he doesn’t expect much to happen in this summer transfer window despite hailing the player and tipping him as a good addition to any team.

Crystal Palace manager noted that the club’s sporting director Doug Freedman has been receiving calls over the speculations regarding Reiss Nelson but there has been no interest from the team.

What the future will be for Reiss Nelson will be known in the coming days as he will either be made to stay at the Emirates Stadium or leave on a loan to other clubs before the deadline day.
