There were reports on Monday morning that Feyenoord and Arsenal had started preliminary talks over a deal for Reiss Nelson after Manchester United’s Amad Diallo picked up an injury in training. He had been set to join Feyenoord for the season.

“He has been injured, it is cancelled,” technical director Frank Arnesen told Algemeen Dagblad on Sunday. “Too bad, everything was settled. I’ve talked a lot with the people at Manchester United, but it’s more sensible to let him recover at that club. It may be a while before he is back.”

This deal seems to have moved fast with football.london now reporting that it is done.

Arteta has not been subtle in making it clear to Nelson that he has no role at Arsenal under his management. He’s seen just 19 minutes of action in the league since the end of 2020 and has made just nine appearances since the start of last season, a total of 262 minutes.

Nelson is under contract at Arsenal until 2023 and according to a Dutch report he will be allowed to leave after he extends his contract.
