Arsenal starlet Reiss Nelson reveals one thing he has been told by Gunners | Football | Sport
Nelson, 19, spent last season on loan at Hoffenheim in Bundesliga. He scored seven goals though started just five times.
Nelson is in England’s Under-21 squad for the European Championships in Italy and San Marino this summer.
Emery was eager to get Nelson game-time during the most recent season.
And having impressed in his limited minutes for Hoffenheim, Nelson now hopes to make an impact at Arsenal.
Nelson told Sky Sports: “Arsenal is my main goal.
“After the Euros I’ll look to go back to pre-season, do that very strong and hopefully play for the team I love.
“I haven’t spoken to him [Unai Emery] yet.
“The recruitment team said I need to concentrate on the Euros and then we’ll get back into Arsenal later on.”
Nelson is hoping he can transfer the skills he learned in Germany to the Premier League.
He added: “It’s a different style the way the German players play.
“I think the English players like to play a lot of one and two touch and we can find each other in the pockets.
“In Germany it’s more physical. It’s a lot of aggressive runs in behind and getting into the box.
“I was happy I got that experience out there and I’m happy to be back.
“I learnt a lot on the pitch and I’ve had to deal with a lot off the pitch as well – the culture, the German [language] barrier, but I thought all in it has been a good experience and I’m ready to come back.”
Emery could be keen to use Nelson next season as he is on a tight financial budget at the Emirates this season.
The Spaniard is believed to have just £40million to spend as he looks to improve his squad.
