Arsenal sensation Reiss Nelson is reportedly close to signing a new deal with the club.
The 18-year-old, who played his first Premier League game during Sunday’s 3-2 victory against Southampton, is a key member of the Gunners’ long-term plans, according to The Telegraph.
Nelson has played 15 games for Arsenal this term, most of which have come in the Europa League, and has been on the club’s books since he was seven years old.
“I think a first-team start in the Premier League at a high level like this is a step forward. The Premier League is so much faster. You have to play everything a bit quicker, one and two-touch. We had to do that, and I enjoyed that,” the youngster is quoted as saying.
“A Premier League start was on the cards, but I think I need to score, that is the only one I haven’t achieved, so fingers crossed I can get a cheeky goal before the end of the season.”
He signed his first professional deal with Arsenal two seasons ago.
