Arsenal's Reiss Nelson Eyes Summer Exit: £20 Million Deal

Young Gunner Seeks New Challenge Amid Limited Playing Time under Arteta

Arsenal winger Reiss Nelson, aged 24, has expressed his intention to leave the club this summer in search of regular playing time elsewhere, as reported by The Athletic. Despite signing a contract extension with Arsenal just last July, which ties him to the club until June 2027 with an option for an additional year, Nelson is keen to explore new opportunities due to his limited role under manager Mikel Arteta.

This season, Nelson accumulated just over 700 minutes across all competitions, failing to secure a regular spot in the team under Arteta. Although several clubs showed interest in him during the January transfer window, Arsenal opted to retain him as they competed in various competitions, including the Premier League and the Champions League, where he served as a backup option.

Arsenal is reportedly open to letting Nelson go this summer if an appropriate offer is made. The club is seeking a fee around £20 million, including add-ons, for the academy graduate who has been with Arsenal since his early years, progressing through the ranks to make his senior debut in 2017. Nelson has also had loan spells at Hoffenheim in the Bundesliga and Feyenoord in the Eredivisie.

Several Premier League clubs, including Crystal Palace, Fulham, Nottingham Forest, and West Ham United, have shown interest in signing Nelson. His pace, technical ability, and versatility make him an attractive option for these clubs looking to bolster their attacking options for the upcoming season.



, Nelson's potential departure represents a strategic decision to balance the squad and finances. Reinvesting the funds from his transfer into new signings or other areas of the squad could prove beneficial as the club aims to compete at the highest levels. With interest from multiple clubs, a resolution to Nelson's desire to leave is expected soon.
