Arsenal starlet Reiss Nelson is on the verge of signing a new contract, according to reports.
The Sun say that Nelson has impressed Emery during Arsenal’s preseason, to the extent that he will be offered a five-year deal at the Emirates.
Nelson, now 18, has been at Arsenal since the age of nine and played 146 Premier League minute last season as he began life in the first team.
But he scored in preseason against Lazio and apparently impressed Emery enough that he will look to give the youngster first-team minutes this season.
Nelson only signed his first professional contract two years ago, and so is still on a relatively low wage. Arsenal will move to address that and keep Nelson at the club, although he is not thought to be interested in moving on.
