Brighton eye Arsenal star for summer signing

Reiss Nelson has been Arsenal’s crisis saving man from bench for years

Brighton is reportedly interested in signing Arsenal winger Reiss Nelson, according to reports. The club's interest in the 24-year-old player comes as part of their strategy to build on their recent positive campaign.

Under the leadership of Boss Roberto De Zerbi, Brighton has had a commendable run this season. They made it to the Europa League knockout stages before suffering a 4-1 aggregate defeat against Roma. Currently, they hold the eighth position in the Premier League table but are just five points behind sixth-place Manchester United.

As summer approaches, De Zerbi is already planning his moves for strengthening his team further. One such move appears to be targeting Arsenal’s Reiss Nelson.

Reiss Nelson has expressed his desire for more minutes

Nelson signed a new contract with Arsenal last summer that runs until 2027. However, he has been unable to secure a spot in Mikel Arteta's starting line-up throughout this season. Despite showing potential and expressing his desire for more playing time after an FA Cup match against Liverpool in January, he hasn't made any Premier League starts so far.

This situation could lead to Nelson being sold off during the summer transfer window - an opportunity that Brighton seems ready to seize upon.

Reiss Nelson, Arsenal forward, said:

“It’s good to be coming off the bench, but I want to be starting, I feel like I am proving myself every day in training, so with this momentum I want to go on and keep playing more."

Riess Nelson won’t come for cheap Seagulls

While there is clear interest from Brighton’s side, acquiring Nelson won’t come cheaply. It is believed that Arsenal would want more than £25 million for him – a significant investment indeed.

However, if successful, securing such a promising player could provide substantial benefits for Brighton as they continue their quest towards higher league positions and greater success on European stages.

The upcoming summer transfer window may see some exciting moves from clubs like Brighton. Players like Reiss Nelson who are looking for more playtime might find better opportunities elsewhere. This potential transfer could result in interesting changes in team dynamics and league standings for sports fans and sports betting enthusiasts.

As always, the summer transfer window promises to be a thrilling period for all football enthusiasts.
