Arsenal’s Reiss Nelson is in big trouble at Hoffenheim

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.

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.
