Reiss Nelson ‘offered a new and improved contract with Arsenal’ as four Premier League clubs and AC Milan were linked

Arsenal have reportedly offered Reiss Nelson a new contract in hopes of keeping him at the club.

The Gunners star’s current deal expires this summer, with clubs across the Premier League and across Europe interested in a potential transfer.

Nelson has played just 495 minutes of football for Arsenal this season, with much of his campaign spent on the sidelines due to injury.

He graduated from the academy successfully, but his stay in north London could come to an end in the coming months.

In an effort to keep their man, the Daily Mail reports that Arsenal have offered him a new contract.

Their proposal includes an increase to Nelson’s current deal, which is said to be around £35,000 a week.

Although he wants to stay, a deal with the club is yet to be agreed with other teams showing interest in a free transfer.

The report adds that Premier League sides including Brighton, Aston Villa, Fulham and West Ham are keen, along with Serie A champions AC Milan.

It remains unclear whether or not the 23-year-old will complete a move abroad with Nelson said to be settled in the capital.

Even though his appearances have been limited, the winger has still scored three goals and assisted three more in all competitions this season.

Nelson’s most recent goal for the club came in the form of a stoppage-time winner in their dramatic 3-2 win over Bournemouth in March.

It’s a strike that could prove crucial in Arsenal’s quest for the Premier League title, although their recent form has seen them lose pace in the race.

The Gunners’ last two games have ended in draws, despite taking a 2-0 lead in both games against Liverpool and West Ham.

They remain top of the table with four points, but second-placed Manchester City are four points behind them with a game less.
