Arsenal’s Reiss Nelson has been nominated for the Bundesliga’s ‘rookie of the season award’.
The 19-year-old Nelson won the league’s rookie of the month award back in October in order to be nominated for the season’s award. Three goals and six assists within the month made sure that the youngster impressed in his early days in Germany
The rookie award is designed for players aged 23 or under who are playing their first season in the Bundesliga. The monthly winners are nominated for the season’s award, which is down to a public vote.
Other nominees are VfB Stuttgart striker Nicolas Gonzalez, Eintracht Frankfurt defender Evan Ndicka, VfB Stuttgart defender Ozan Kabak, FC Nürnberg midfielder Matheus Pereira and Borussia Dortmund defender Achraf Hakimi, who was the only one of the seven nominees to win the monthly award on more than one occasion.
