Arsenal midfielder Reiss Nelson eager to stay in London

Arsenal midfielder Reiss Nelson is eager to stay in London next season.

Nelson was a bright spark in the Bundesliga last term, however, he is planning on staying at the Gunners and fighting for his place next season.

Nelson told Sky Sports: “Arsenal is my main goal."

Nelson is hoping he can transfer the skills he learned in Germany to the Premier League.

He added: “It's a different style the way the German players play.

“I think the English players like to play a lot of one and two touch and we can find each other in the pockets.

"In Germany it's more physical. It's a lot of aggressive runs in behind and getting into the box.

“I was happy I got that experience out there and I'm happy to be back.

"I learnt a lot on the pitch and I've had to deal with a lot off the pitch as well - the culture, the German [language] barrier, but I thought all in it has been a good experience and I'm ready to come back."
