Reiss Nelson & Hoffenheim
Reiss Nelson was farmed out on loan from Arenal to Hoffenheim last summer.
In the first half of the season, Nelson was superb for Hoffenheim.
Nelson scored six goals in eleven games before the new year.
The 19-year-old also impressed in the Champions League too.
But Nelson has barely been seen since 2019 began.
Arsenal loanee dropped for disciplinary reasons
Reiss Nelson missed Hoffenheim’s match against Nurnberg on Sunday.
It’s since been confirmed that the Arsenal loanee was dropped for disciplinary reasons.
Hoffenheim manager Julian Nagelsmann told the press that Nelson was axed because of “educational measures”.
So what exactly has Nelson done? Unfortunately that information hasn’t been released.
Yet the feeling is that Nelson is now firmly on the outside of things at Hoffenheim.
Nelson is set to return to Arsenal at the end of the season.
Reiss Nelson was dropped from Hoffenheim squad for 'disciplinary reasons' on Sunday. Sources in Germany say no decision yet on when Arsenal loanee will be considered for selection by Julian Nagelsmann again.

I know Nelson would have learnt a lot under Nagelsmann but he hasn't started a game since the last international break 4 months ago and barely gets 20 minutes. Surely this isn't what we wanted to for him?

Arsenal & Reiss Nelson
Reiss Nelson came up through Arsenal’s youth academy, before breaking into the club’s first-team setup last season.
However, with the likes of Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Mesut Ozil, Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang at the Gunners, it was decided last summer that Nelson’s progress would be greater aided by a loan stint away from the club.
Reiss Nelson, stop that 😳😱
He's loving life in Germany 🙌 pic.twitter.com/KBcSpHqGZ6
