[Video] Arsenal wonderkid scores for U21’s in front of Arsene Wenger

By on February 9, 2016

Reiss Nelson should certainly have made an impression on Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger after putting in an impressive display for the under-21’s last Friday.

Nelson is one of the most highly-rated youngsters to have come through our Hall End youth academy in recent years and really announced himself as a prospect after a superb performance against Bayern Munich U19’s last season.

The 16-year-old has continued to showcase his talents this year and once again enhanced his reputation within the club with another excellent performance for the U21’s against Brighton & Hove Albion.

Nelson opened the scoring with a fine finish in the 2nd minute before grabbing an assist for Krystian Bielik as the under-21’s eased to a 4-1 victory last Friday, with Arsene Wenger watching-on closely from the stands.

Nelson is certainly one player worth keeping a close eye on over the coming years and it won’t be long before he’s knocking on Wenger’s door for a call up to the first team if he carries on impressing for the youth sides.
