Reiss Nelson is unarguably one of the most promising youngsters to have emerged through the youth ranks of Arsenal and his calibre has started to get a lot of recognition from fans and media alike. Owing to the plethora of stars Arsene Wenger has at his disposal, Nelson’s chances of plying his trade for the senior side of the North London based outfit do look slim this season, but the future looks bright indeed for him.
Loan deals help managers in handing the starlets the chance to blossom and with the January transfer window fast approaching, Monsieur Wenger might look to ship Nelson out to accumulate game time under his belt and at the same time, it would enable him in garnering experience and showcase what he is capable of. For the 17-year-old, venturing into the Championship looks an ideal endeavour and joining the ranks of Wolverhampton Wanderers might be an appealing one for him.
Wolves have inked a smashing start to their season in the English second division as they are placed at the top of the league table with 26 points to their name after 12 outings. Under the tutelage of Nuno Espirito Santo, they have been chiselling out stupendous results and have seemingly appeared to be a side which could earn a promotion to the Premier League and in their pursuit of doing so, Nelson could be an excellent asset.
The 17-year-old forward is a player who has raw pace in his legs and finds himself at the right position at the right time more often than not. His dribbling skills, close control and crisp movements make him a decent package and his versatility further bolsters his credentials.
Nelson might not be a physically tough player but the element of surprise that he offers, apart from the calm and composure that he has shown while playing for the youth sides of the Gunners, has also come to the notice of the football fraternity.
Of course, he is far from being a finished product, but he is a focused and confident lad who would take the opportunities given to him with open arms. His tenacity in one-vs-one situations and immense work-rate would, without any shadow of a doubt, be welcomed by any Championship side. With a move to the Molineux Stadium, Arsenal would be able to pencil his developments, while Nelson should be able to progress in his career and thus, the move would be an ideal one for all the parties involved.
