Under Unai Emery, there are a number of players that are emerging as fan favourites at the Emirates. From Bernd Leno to Lucas Torreira, Emery has invested well, and his players are repaying the faith.
However, it’s not just players that are currently at the club that are building a reputation with the Arsenal fans. Indeed, there’s one man that’s currently away from the Emirates that fans just can’t seem to get enough of.
The man in question is Reiss Nelson. He’s looked good for Arsenal’s developmental system for a while, but he’s currently enjoying a great campaign on-loan with Hoffenheim.
He’s bagged 6 league goals, and it’s becoming clear that not only is he a fan favourite, but he’s one of Arsenal’s best young players.
The attacker has today (Monday) turned 19-years-old, and unsurprisingly, the Arsenal faithful have used the day as an opportunity to heap praise upon him. Arsenal shared a Tweet in celebration of the day over on Twitter.
@ReissNelson9 turns 19 today – so we’d like to say…
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, REISS! pic.twitter.com/f5cHj74MeY

Naturally, many fans responded very quickly indeed, and Nelson is a really popular player. They can’t wait for him to come back to the Emirates, as you can see below…
Happy Birthday, Reiss. Come back stronger and more skilled next season.

Hope to see him back in January… potentially miles ahead of Iwobi… should be given a chance along with Smith Rowe.

Bring him back. I cannot stand Iwobi’s first touch anymore.
