Foxes of Leicester discuss exclusive information on Leicester City’s pursuit of Arsenal’s Reiss Nelson courtesy of journalist Ekrem Konur. FoL also analyse the player and offer a brief verdict on the likelihood of an agreement between the Foxes and the Gunners.

First of all, Nelson’s superb and well-timed finish versus Bournemouth on Saturday afternoon was remarkably efficient. This showed that the winger can still do the business in the Premier League, as I like to say. In addition to that fact, by scoring when he did with all the pressure on title-chasing Arsenal to find a winner with 97 minutes gone, the attacker also exhibited match-winning ability at a testing time.

I’ve always admired the Gunners academy product; he’d be a shrewd signing for mid-table English top-flight teams, or those on a quest for European qualification. I am not sure whether the former Hoffenheim and Feyenoord loanee will make it as a starter at one of the eminent EPL clubs. As a role player, we all just witnessed the majesty the forward can produce in tough moments. For Leicester, Nelson would be an optimum acquisition who could raise performances and heighten wing options. Not to mention enabling competition for occasionally underperforming but talented footballers such as Harvey Barnes. Avoiding relegation is certainly key, here.

Konur said that the player is in no rush to decide his future. However, he wants a to be somewhere he’ll be provided with more minutes on the pitch. Nelson wishes for a three-year deal from whoever he signs with, for safety. Finally, it was claimed that the Englishman was ‘upset’ at a lack of opportunities at Emirates Stadium.
