Arsenal fans were gutted back in August when Hoffenheim took Reiss Nelson on-loan on deadline day of the transfer window. However, Unai Emery obviously knew what he was doing and saw the youngster getting more game time in the Bundesliga. Now, though, Nelson has four goals in four league games and the fans want him back.

The youngster is one of a number of English players who have taken the Bundesliga by storm in the last few seasons. A good friend of Nelson is Jadon Sancho and he’s been on fire at Borussia Dortmund, then there’s Reece Oxford and Ademola Lookman who have also enjoyed fruitful spells in Germany on-loan from West Ham and Everton respectively. At the moment, however, Arsenal fans believe Nelson should be in their senior squad.
Ironically, Nelson is playing Champions League football whilst playing in Germany and whilst he’s only played 22 minutes of action in the competition, that’s more than any of the current Arsenal first team. The experience will still do him good and if Emery can qualify for the Champions League ahead of next season then the game time that Nelson is getting now will only serve him well in the coming seasons.

The fans would love to have Nelson back but they have faith in Emery and will hope that Nelson will be ready to tear up the Premier League upon his return.
