Hoffenheim head coach Julian Nagelsmann has confirmed that he is interested in signing Arsenal starlet Reiss Nelson.
Nelson is understood to be closing in on a season-long loan move to the Bundesliga side, though they have until 6pm on Friday to get the deal over the line.
The 18-year-old has not featured in Arsenal‘s opening three Premier League fixtures so far, and is believed to be keen on securing game time with Hoffenheim.
Nagelsmann commented on reported interest, stating: “We’ve taken an interest in Reiss Nelson, I can disclose that.
“But nothing is set in stone as there are still things to clear up. If it all works out, we’ll have a player with great pace who can do a lot with the ball.”
