According to CaughtOffside, Crystal Palace are ready to make an opening bid for Arsenal’s Reiss Nelson in the region of €10m (£8.45m). The Gunners want €25m (£21.1m) for the 24-year-old, with the Eagles even beginning talks to secure a move.


Crystal Palace aren’t alone, though, with Fulham and West Ham United also named as suitors for Nelson, who is now no longer in Mikel Arteta’s first-team plans at the Emirates.

Nelson, on £100,000-a-week in north London, has struggled for game time, contributing to four goals in 747 minutes of game time during the 2023/24 season.

He did receive praise from Arteta last year, though, with the Spaniard calling the winger “important” after his winner against Bournemouth. “I always saw the potential,” Arteta said of Nelson.

“The talent and the desire for him to do it, but he’s at a different level right now. I think emotionally, the experiences that he had helped him. Football-wise, it was my decision in the last two games not to play him because we had other options. But he was knocking on the door, he’s been training really good and it’s a good lesson for me and for the coaches that we need him and that he can be really important for the team.”

Nelson has made 89 senior appearances for the Gunners in total, scoring eight times and registering nine assists, and by the look of it, a move across London to Palace, Fulham or West Ham is one to watch this summer.
