WHAT HAPPENED? Nelson has committed his future to the Gunners by signing a long-term deal after making an impact as the club finished second in the Premier League table. The winger did not make a Premier League start in 2022-23 but he scored three goals, including a dramatic 97th-minute winner against Bournemouth.

THE BIGGER PICTURE: The 23-year-old has been with Arsenal since the age of eight, and has previously played for both Hoffenheim and Feyenoord on loan. He will now hope to force his way into Mikel Arteta's first-team amid their summer spending spree; the club are closing in on the signings of Declan Rice and Jurrien Timber from West Ham and Ajax respectively.

WHAT THEY SAID?: Manager Arteta told the club's website:  “Reiss is a player I have admired since the first day I was here. He has tremendous ability and is such an exciting offensive talent. Reiss knows how important he is to our squad with the quality he has.
