Reiss Nelson’s future remains undecided with no concrete negotiations yet, amid reports of interest from two Premier League clubs among others.
Fabrizio Romano reports that Reiss Nelson’s future still isn’t decided, as talks over a new deal with Arsenal are not advanced at this stage.
Romano claims Nelson would be happy to stay, but there no concrete negotiations yet, leaving the decision up to Arsenal.
The same journalist then told CaughtOffside that two Premier League clubs and two or three clubs from abroad are known to be exploring the option of a free transfer for Nelson this summer.
Nelson is back in full training with Arsenal after injury, but Mikel Arteta told the media ahead of the Brentford game that the winger was still not yet ready to be considered for competitive action.
That will hopefully change this week, with another couple of Premier League games coming up against Manchester City and Aston Villa.
Speaking in December, Nelson himself admitted that he’d like a new contract with Arsenal.
“I feel like Arsenal is the club for me at this moment in time,” Nelson said. “I have been here for so long and I’m very comfortable here.
“Of course, I want to play games and I want to play week in, week out, but I feel like at this moment in time I am at a place where I am only going to get better.
“I am an Arsenal fan and, of course, I want to sign a new contract at the club. I am just going to be ready for anything I get now and give my all for the team.”
That wasn’t the first time Nelson has professed his desire to extend his Arsenal contract, having said something similar following his impressive appearance against Nottingham Forest earlier in the campaign.
But there are no substantial updates on a new deal just yet.
Arsenal will presumably make a decision on Nelson’s long-term future once he’s back in action on the pitch again.
