Journalist Dean Jones has suggested that he does not believe Arsenal fully trust Reiss Nelson, who is earning £100,000-a-week at the Emirates.
The journalist adds that Mikel Arteta could look to bring in another player to compete with him during the summer transfer window.
Speaking to GIVEMESPORT, he said: “Reiss Nelson did a good job when he came in at moments last season. Personally, I’m not sure they completely trust him to compete exactly when they need to.
“Their big worry will be, if they suffer a bad injury somewhere, that he’d end up playing for a long number of games.
“So maybe it’s not even that they’re worried about Reiss Nelson being able to play the odd game, it’s that they want a challenger to compete with him if there are more games than that to cover.”
Nelson made 11 Premier League appearances, scoring three and assisting two for the Gunners.
A few of those goals helped Arsenal secure some key points but it is easy to see why they may wish to strengthen on the right now they are back in the Champions League and looking to compete for the title once more.
