A video has been released showcasing one of Arsenal’s latest youth products; and you won’t want to miss it.
15-year old winger Reiss Nelson looks to be the real deal in the clip; embarrassing opponents with an array of skills. Those quick feet are sure to be the apple of many a managers eye as Nelson approaches the age at which he can begin to consider signing professional contracts.
Nelson already represents England schoolboys as well as being an ‘adidas athlete’ at such a young age.
Although obviously a raw talent, Nelson seems to possess a style suited to Arsene Wenger’s side; with excellent ball control similar to that of a Mesut Ozil or Santi Cazorla.
Nelson has already made his Under-18s debut for Arsenal, in a 2-1 loss to West Brom, and then featured again against rivals, Tottenham.
His name is getting out there, and with several appearances on Sky Sports already under his belt, the career of Reiss Nelson is really on the up.
Considering players like Theo Walcott and Wayne Rooney made professional debuts at the age of 16, it might not be long before we see Nelson tearing up the league in similar fashion. You may remember Chelsea’s 8-year old, Denim Nnamudi who also featured on FFDTV as one to watch.
