The homegrown winger has been enjoying impressive form lately.
Reiss Nelson has expressed his desire to sign a new deal at Arsenal as he spends the final months of his current contract.
Nelson joined Arsenal as a nine-year-old and moved up through the club’s academy ranks. Following two loan spells at Hoffenheim and Feyenoord, the English forward seems ready to kick-start his career at the north London side.
“I’ve never doubted myself at this football club,” said Nelson whose contract will expire next summer.
“Arsenal is a team that I’ve been at since I was eight years old and I have a very, very strong bond and love for the club.
“Of course, there’s been times where I’ve been a bit down when I haven’t played or been on the bench, but my plan has never been for me to leave the club or say that I have no future here and I will do everything possible to get there.”
Nelson scored twice in Arsenal’s 5-0 win over Nottingham Forest on Sunday. The 22-year-old will most likely get another chance to shine when the Gunners host FC Zurich in their next Europa League game in midweek.
He added: “I only have some months left on my contract but at this moment of time, getting a new deal, of course, that would be amazing and I would love to commit to the club.
“But I’m just really, really focused on doing everything I possible just to do the right stuff and if I get to play for the team to do well, of course, it’s hard coming in for 5-10 minutes and of course, I would love to play much, much longer.”
