The young Arsenal prodigy Reiss Nelson is destined for glory. Showcasing sensational footballing ability, he possesses an unbelievable first touch and a suave ability on the ball.
The young England forward can play anywhere along the front three. Seeming comfortable on the ball and possessing technical ability on both feet, Reiss Nelson is a superstar in the making. He has featured for the England u17 as well as the Arsenal u21 last season. However, more recently we have seen Reiss Nelson promoted to the first team. He has featured regularly this preseason. Impressing against Sydney FC: youthful and fearless Reiss Nelson was a refreshing sight for the Arsenal fans who followed the team in preseason. His audacity on the ball provided great excitement, dribbling through defences and providing excellent floating crosses into the box, Reiss Nelson was causing havoc.
More recently we have seen Reiss Nelson make his official Arsenal debut in the Community Shield against Chelsea. Coming on in the conclusive minutes of the game, he gave us a small glimpse of the flair he can bring to the team. It is evident that Wenger has a large amount of faith in the young player, giving him his debut at Wembley in a London derby. Hopefully this is a glimpse of what is to come, with Arsenal in the Europa League it offers Wenger the chance to rotate his team: resting his best players and giving young players a chance to impress. Reiss Nelson will be provided an excellent platform to exhibit his exciting skill and sinuous runs, combined with his fantastic first touch and ability with both feet to the world. Nelson could soon become one of the biggest names amongst Europe’s elite young players.
