Arsenal star Reiss Nelson rejects contract offer in major blow for Mikel Arteta

Arsenal star Reiss Nelson rejects contract offer in major blow for Mikel Arteta

The winger could be on his way out of the club.

Reiss Nelson has rejected Arsenal's latest contract offer amid interest from Premier League clubs, according to reports.

Nelson has been on the fringes of the action this season, having struggled for regular game time under Mikel Arteta.

Although he did produce one of the Gunners' most memorable moments, scoring a dramatic winning goal during Arsenal's 3-2 win over Bournemouth back in March.

The 23-year-old has still not started a Premier League game this term, with the likes of Bukayo Saka, Gabriel Martinelli and Leandro Trossard all seemingly ahead of him in the pecking order.

Nevertheless, Arsenal are keen to tie him down to a new deal at the Emirates, but it seems Nelson has other ideas.

Nelson 'rejects' Arsenal contract

Football Insider have claimed that Nelson has turned down the first contract offer made by the Gunners.

The Englishman earns a reported wage of £15,000-a-week in north London, with his contract due to expire at the end of June.

But he is thought to want assurances over his game time, believing he should be playing more regularly at this stage of his career.

The Daily Mail reported that Nelson turned down a new contract earlier this month, stating that there is 'a growing belief' that he will leave Arsenal at the end of the season.

Indeed, Brighton are said to be sniffing around over a potential deal for the winger, who could become a free agent this summer.

In other news, Saka is thought to be on the verge of signing a new deal at the club which would make him one of the league's highest earners.

The Independent state that promotional footage has already been recorded for the announcement, with Saka poised to pen fresh terms before the season is up.
