- Reiss Nelson’s contract with Arsenal expires at the end of the season
- The winger has rejected two offers of a new deal and looks set to leave
- The Gunners have made a third attempt to convince him to stay at the club
Arsenal have made a third contract offer to Reiss Nelson after the winger rejected their first two proposals.
Nelson has not started a game since 2019 but has featured in all of the Gunners’ last six premier League games, looking sharp while doing so.
The 23-year-old’s contract expires in the summer and the club are clearly trying to convince him that he does have a future in north London.
Those efforts have so far been unsuccessful but CBS claim Arsenal have now made a new and improved offer.
Reiss Nelson has already turned down two contract extension offers from Arsenal
Should no agreement materialise, however, Nelson would become a free agent and be free to join whichever club he pleases.
In recent years Arsenal have allowed several players to leave for nothing, such as Hector Bellerin, Alexandre Lacazette, Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Mesut Ozil, Shkodran Mustafi, Jack Wilshere and Aaron Ramsey.
Nelson has spent his entire career on Arsenal’s books, leaving only on loan to Hoffenheim in 2018-19 and Feyenoord in 2021-22.
So far this season, the winger has three Premier League goals and two assists, most notably scoring a dramatic late winner against Bournemouth.
It is believed that a cameo role is something that he is no longer interested in.
Mikel Arteta and Co have reportedly made a third offer in an effort to convince Nelson to stay
