The Transfer Tavern‘s EFL spy reckons that Sheffield United would represent a good opportunity for Arsenal youngster Reiss Nelson to get first-team football.
The 21-year-old is approaching the 50-appearance mark for his boyhood club but was forced to step down and play with in Premier League 2 last season to get regular game-time.
Will Baldock stay at Sheffield United this summer?
However, Nelson did spend the 2018-2019 campaign in the Bundesliga with Hoffenheim, proving himself at the highest level by scoring seven times in 23 league outings.
But with the likes of Nicolas Pepe, Gabriel Martinelli, Willian and Bukayo Saka all ahead if Nelson in the pecking order, another loan move away from north London is likely to be his best source of first-team football.
And with Sheffield United expected to challenge for a place back in the Premier League, the EFL insider reckons that Bramall Lane under the tutelage of Slavisa Jokanovic could be an ideal home for the youngster as they look to make an immediate return to the top flight.
He exclusively told The Transfer Tavern:
“With Sheffield United financially in a good position after the Premier League trip, I think you could see some really good players joining them for a challenge to the top-flight again.
“They’re a major club in the Championship, so it wouldn’t surprise me if they make good signings from Premier League and Championship clubs.
“And, a good player would be Reiss Nelson, a right winger at Arsenal who needs good game time now at a good level.”
