Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger confirms Reiss Nelson promotion

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is ready to promote Reiss Nelson next season.

Wenger has confirmed Nelson will make the step up to the Arsenal first team next term.

“We have some young players who will join the squad next season," Wenger said. “Like Reiss Nelson, like Ainsley Maitland-Niles already. So they are two players.

“So we have quality players who might have a chance next season and hopefully we will be able to do that again because that's part of the DNA of the club as well.

“The first quality we have that will be needed is to keep the [first-team] players together. The team has learned a lot, but to transfer that into the new season the first ingredient and the first request is that they stay together, that they fight together.

“So that's basically my answer: let's keep them all together."
