Arsenal winger Reiss Nelson is set to sign for Feyenoord on a season-long loan, football.
The Dutch outfit are keen to recruit a winger this summer and have targeted Nelson after a move for Manchester United’s Amad Diallo collapsed.
Diallo was the club’s priority option in that area but the club’s technical director Frank Arnesen confirmed that the deal is off.
Talking to Algemeen Dagblad, he said:
“He [Amad] got injured, it [transfer] does not go through.
“Too bad, everything was done. I’ve talked a lot with the people at Manchester United, but it’s more sensible to let him recover at that club. It may be a while before he is back.”
Nelson has seemed unlikely to have a future with Arsenal for some time. Following a successful loan spell with Hoffenheim in 2018/19, the now 21-year-old went on to make 22 appearances for the Gunners during the next campaign, netting three goals.
