Wenger has confirmed Nelson will make the step up to the Arsenal first team next term.
â€œWe have some young players who will join the squad next season," Wenger said. â€œLike Reiss Nelson, like Ainsley Maitland-Niles already. So they are two players.
â€œSo 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.
â€œThe 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.
â€œSo that's basically my answer: let's keep them all together."
