Arsenal starlet Reiss Nelson, 21, drops hint after 'liking' Instagram post linking him with Brighton transfer

REISS NELSON appeared to drop a hint over his future – by 'liking' an Instagram post linking him with a transfer to Brighton.

The Arsenal winger, 21, has struggled to make his mark under Mikel Arteta.


He made just eight first-team appearances last season, with no Premier League starts.

And that has led to speculation surrounding where he will be playing his football next term – despite coming off the bench in the 2-2 friendly draw with Rangers on Saturday.

The Hale End graduate, who joined Arsenal aged nine, is into the final year of his Emirates contract.

But he may have given a clue where he is heading by hitting the heart on a post from BHA Media, a Brighton fan page on Instagram.

The image showed Nelson playing for Arsenal with the Brighton badge in the corner.

It was captioned: "REISS NELSON TO BRIGHTON?"

Reports have already linked Nelson with Brighton while Crystal Palace and Brentford are also in the hunt for the England Under-21 international.

The Gunners and the Seagulls remain in close contact sorting out Ben White's £50million transfer from the south coast to North London.

Brighton ace Yves Bissouma could also be a transfer target for Arteta this summer.

He spent the 2018-19 season on loan with Hoffenheim and could return to Germany with Bundesliga clubs interested while Olympiacos have entered the race.

However, teams abroad know they can arrange a free transfer for next summer as early as January due to his contract expiring.

CBS Sports state Arsenal have offered an extension to his current deal but negotiations have stalled.

Nelson further sparked exit rumours when he placed his £3m, six-bedroom North London mansion on the market.
