Arsenal will reportedly listen to offers for Reiss Nelson this summer. Boss Mikel Arteta looks to get rid of some of his fringe stars. The 21-year-old has made just two Premier League appearances and both from the bench.

Nelson lost his place when Arteta took the reins in north London. According to CBS Sports, Nelson is surplus to requirements.

“We ended up with a large squad at the end of the transfer market,” said Arteta. “We had a few plans in mind with Reiss. One of them was as well to send him on loan to get more minutes because of the competition we have upfront. The reality is he has been really good in training. He wants to stay here. He wants to fight for his place.”

Nelson’s deal at Emirates expires in 2023. However, he has been unable to convince Arteta he should play more. The academy graduate has made eight appearances in all competitions this term and has a goal an assist to his name.
