Arsenal legend Thierry Henry tells fans: Reiss Nelson the real deal

Arsenal legend Thierry Henry is convinced by the potential Reiss Nelson.

Henry wrote for The Sun: "I worked with Reiss when I was at the Arsenal Academy and I was so impressed with him. He has all the attributes to make it.

"At the Academy, he was training and playing with the Under-18s — and he was only 16. But he was so good that, after two or three months, we felt he was wasting his time.

"He was not learning anything because he was too good for that standard.

"So he was moved up to the Under-23s so he could work with stronger and bigger guys.

"This kid has all the talent to be knocking on the door of the first team."
