BAD NEWS: Italian Giant Makes huge big for Arsenal Superstar

Published

AC Milan have reportedly tabled an offer to sign Arsenal forward Reiss Nelson amid the Englishman’s contractual uncertainty in London.

Fabrizio Romano reported a couple of days ago that the 23-year-old is on the cusp of putting pen to paper on a new four-year contract at the Emirates Stadium.

Nelson’s current deal is due to expire at the end of June, but the Gunners are determined to renew his contract following a decent season under Mikel Arteta.

However, the versatile forward was a peripheral figure in the Spaniard’s set-up in 2022/23, clocking just 11 Premier League appearances without making a single start.

Milan seem to have spotted a window of opportunity and decided to act quickly to hijack Arsenal’s effort to tie their homegrown product down to a new long-term deal.

According to Calciomercato, Nelson has ‘taken his time to evaluate his options,’ handing the Italians’ quest to bring him to Serie A a glimmer of hope.

Despite his relatively sparse playing time at Arsenal, the English youngster racked up three goals and two assists in only 202 minutes of top-flight action last season.

His fantastic average of a goal contribution roughly every 40 minutes has caught Stefano Pioli’s attention, with Milan prepared to fulfil their coach’s wish.

Nelson is not the only bit-part Premier League player courted by the Rossoneri.

Chelsea misfit Ruben Loftus-Cheek has been heavily linked with a move to San Siro in the past couple of months, but that transfer is now in doubt.

After sacking chief executives Paolo Maldini and Frederic Massara, who played crucial roles in negotiating the midfielder’s switch to Serie A, they could change the course of their recruitment campaign.

But while Loftus-Cheek’s transfer now hangs by a thread, Milan remain determined to snap up Daichi Kamada on a free transfer.

The Japanese forward’s contract runs out at the end of June, with talks between the parties entering advanced stages weeks ago.
