Arsenal identify three-man transfer shortlist amid Reiss Nelson contract snub

Arsenal have reportedly identified three targets who could replace Reiss Nelson, should the winger choose to move on from the Emirates.

Nelson turned down a contract extension at the Gunners, according to Fabrizio Romano, casting serious doubt over his future in north London.

The 23-year-old has struggled for regular game time under Mikel Arteta this term, failing to register one single Premier League start.

However, his heroic 96th winner off the bench against Bournemouth last March has etched his name into Arsenal's history books, with the Englishman seemingly part of Arteta's future plans.


But should Nelson decide call time on his career at Arsenal, a number of suitors could be queuing up for his signature, including Brighton and Serie A giants AC Milan, claim the Daily Mail.


While negotiations are thought to be ongoing, Arsenal have allegedly identified three targets who could replace him at the club.

Arsenal are in the market for a right-sided winger to help provide cover for Bukayo Saka ahead of their return to the Champions League next season, report 90min.

One of the names rumoured with a return to the Premier League is Barcelona winger Raphinha.

Arsenal attempted to sign the Brazilian from Leeds last season, but he opted for a move to the Camp Nou instead.

However, Barca's latest plans for a historic reunion with Lionel Messi could see Raphinha axed from the team, with Arsenal and Newcastle placed on red alert.


The report also details Arsenal's interest in Bayer Leverkusen's Moussa Diaby, who has been a long-term target for Newcastle.

Although Messi's impending departure from Paris Saint-Germain could see the French club try to re-sign Diaby after they let him go in 2019.

Finally, Ferran Torres has been linked with a move to the Gunners, as Barcelona look to increase their capital, claim talkSPORT.

The Athletic originally revealed Arsenal's interest in Torres back in January. However, Arteta opted to sign Leandro Trossard from Brighton instead.


Torres could become the third former Manchester City player Arteta has added to his squad, following in the footsteps of Gabriel Jesus and Oleksandr Zinchenko.
