Arsenal are reportedly open to loaning out young winger Reiss Nelson.

The 20-year-old featured 22 times for the Gunners last season, but hasn’t even made the bench in Arsenal’s first two Premier League games.

A loan away for Nelson would be the second in his short career. He spent the 2018/19 season with German outfit Hoffenheim where he worked under talented young boss Julian Nagelsmann.

Speaking on ‘Ask Ornstein’ by The Athletic he said: “My information is Reiss Nelson is now available to leave Arsenal in the current transfer window on a loan basis.

“I think it’s a very early stage of the process. I’m not sure conversations are taking place just yet with interested parties. But I’m sure there will be a lot of them.

“So it’s likely that he will go away, get game time. Then hopefully for him and Arsenal, he’ll come back a better and more experienced player.”


Gunners to increase Aouar bid

Arsenal, meanwhile, are set to increase their bid for Houssem Aouar after learning they face serious competition for the Lyon star.

Mikel Arteta wants to revamp his midfield and wants Aouar as well as Atletico Madrid’s Thomas Partey.

Arsenal’s hopes of securing Aouar received a timely lift last week. As per Italian journalist Nicolo Schira, Aouar agreed personal terms on a five-year deal with the Gunners earlier this month.

He added that Arsenal are yet to agree a deal with Lyon, but they will now up their efforts to secure an agreement with the Ligue 1 side.

Earlier this summer, Arsenal saw Lyon reject their offer of Matteo Guendouzi in part exchange.

However, they are now ready to launch a second bid to sign the 22-year-old.
