Cape Town - Arsenal manager Unai Emery is delighted to track the progress of Reiss Nelson during his loan spell with Hoffenheim.

The 18-year-old England under 21 international signed a long-term contract with Arsenal in August 2018 ahead of moving to Germany for the 2018/19 season.

During his short time in the Bundesliga, Nelson has scored five goals and created one in six league games.

It is uncertain as to whether or not Arsenal will recall the former Lewisham Borough attacker at the end of the season, but Emery is pleased with his progress thus far.

He told reporters: “At the moment we don’t speak about that. With Reiss, we are very happy with him at the moment. We follow him every match. We are thinking how he can help us in the future.

“He can take responsibility, minutes and confidence in a team where he can play more. Then the objective is to come back with us and grow with this experience.

“My experience in Spain and France is that with this loan the player can take this.”
