Arsenal boss Unai Emery says he is keeping a very close eye on Reiss Nelson and his impressive performances for Hoffenheim. The youngster joined Die Kraichgauer on a season-long loan in the summer and has hit the ground running in the Bundesliga, firing home five goals and providing one assist in six appearances.
That has lead to suggestions the Gunners could try and recall him when the January window opens in order to help their push for silverware this season.
Emery would not go into whether that is an option, but is delighted with the way his young starlet is thriving with the German club. “He can take responsibility, minutes and confidence in a team where he can play more,” Emery said.
“Then the objective with him is to come back with us and grow with this experience. “My experience in Spain and France is that with this loan the player can achieve this. “With Reiss, we are very happy with him at the moment. We follow him every match. We are thinking about how he can help us in the future.”
