It’s starting to look like we’ve got one hell of a player on our hands in Reiss Nelson.
The 18-year-old took his tally for the season to five goals in six games for Hoffenheim, this time finding the top corner with a brilliant curling effort from the edge of the box to give his loan side the lead against Bayer Leverkusen.
The England under-21 international broke the deadlock on 19 minutes from a well-worked short corner routine as Julian Nagelsmann’s side recorded an impressive 4-1 away at Bernd Leno’s old side.
According to the BBC, only one other foreign teenager has scored more goals in the Bundesliga in a single season; that was Ousmane Dembele who netted six times for Borussia Dortmund in 2016/17 before he sealed a mega move to Barcelona.

Hoffenheim’s win sees them climb to 7th in the Bundesliga table just one point adrift of the Champions League places. Elsewhere ex-Gunner Serge Gnabry scored for Bayern as they drew 1-1 with Freiburg.
