‘Bring Him Back!’ ‘Better than Iwobi’ – Fans On Twitter Keen To See Loan Star Return To Arsenal After Latest Display

Arsenal winger Reiss Nelson scored the seventh goal of his loan spell at Hoffenheim at the weekend.

The 19-year-old headed in from short range to make it 2-0 in the home win against Hertha Berlin yesterday.

Some supporters on Twitter are calling on Unai Emery to make sure Nelson is part of the first team setup next season:

Others are not so sure:

The teenager has certainly had a decent campaign for Hoffenheim, with a hot streak of five goals in five games coming back in October and November.

However, since then, Nelson has struggled for both fitness and game time. The midfielder has had back problems and missed two games recently due to a thigh injury.

Hoffenheim manager Julian Nagelsmann even omitted him from the squad for the Nuremberg game last month due to disciplinary issues.

It hasn’t all been plain sailing for Nelson then, but the form he has shown certainly makes him a good candidate to come back and provide an option on the wing next campaign.
