Arsenal starlet Reiss Nelson wanted by Crystal Palace as Patrick Vieira chases loan transfer

CRYSTAL PALACE boss Patrick Vieira is going back to Arsenal with a bid for winger Reiss Nelson.

Nelson tops the Eagles’ list for a new wide man and Gunners icon Vieira wants a loan deal.

Reiss Nelson could be loaned out after being on the fringes at Arsenal last season

Palace have one Prem loan left after their swoop for Chelsea midfielder Conor Gallagher — as SunSport revealed this week.

Arsenal sent Nelson, 21, to Germans Hoffenheim in 2018-19 but he has been a fringe player since and they could lend him out to a Premier League rival.

Upon his return to the Emirates the winger made 17 league appearances in 2019-20.

But he found himself cut adrift from Mikel Arteta’s plans last term so a loan move could be in the interest of both player and club.

A loan would also leave Palace money for a striker as Vieira makes wholesale changes to his squad.

The Eagles got rid of Andros Townsend, Gary Cahill, Nathaniel Clyne and many more after their contracts came to an end.

Palace are also considering Ademola Lookman, 23, who can come back to the Prem from Germans RB Leipzig on loan — but it will cost a fortune.

The forward is fancied by Burnley and Watford after spending last season at Fulham.

But the Bundesliga club’s stunning £3.5million loan fee, plus wages of £50,000 a week, are too much for admirers.

Vieira has been given funds to spend this summer and has looked to upgrade his defence with the additions of Marc Guehi and Joachim Anderson.

And after landing Gallagher Palace’s priority may now be on improving the attack.
