According to Fabrizio Romano, Arsenal have made another contract offer to Reiss Nelson as they push hard to keep the winger.
The 23-year-old is the only Gunner to be out of contract this summer and is understood to be weighing up approaches from Premier League and continental clubs. It’s claimed a new deal at Emirates Stadium would run until 2027.
Nelson last signed a long-term contract in 2018 and has since embarked on loan spells with Hoffenheim and Feyenoord.

He’s been a more prominent member of Mikel Arteta’s first team squad this season making 17 appearances in all competitions.
While he’s only averaging 32-minute cameos, he’s proved he can have an impact, making two assists and scoring three goals, including the memorable late winner against Bournemouth.
Nelson’s contract negotiations appear to be running alongside those with Martin Odegaard, Ben White and William Saliba as Edu looks to reward good performances and protect long-term squad stability.
Bukayo Saka’s new deal will be announced imminently.
