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