Arsenal winger Reiss Nelson is enjoying his renaissance at the club and is hoping to remain a Gunner for “many more years” despite his current contract expiring next summer, Sky Sports News reports.

Nelson has become more involved in the first team in recent weeks after many thought his Arsenal career would come to an end last summer.

The Hale End graduate spent last season on loan at Feyenoord and enjoyed a successful spell, helping the Dutch side to the Europa Conference League final.

The 22-year-old had a solid pre-season with the team and while his long-term future was always in question, a thigh injury days before the transfer window closed ended talk of an exit.

Since returning to full fitness Nelson was gradually introduced in Europa League games, but it’s that game against Nottingham Forest that propelled him to a bonafide option.

Mikel Arteta has always been a huge fan of the winger, and he restored the faith in him by bagging a brace in that game.

Nelson’s current contract expires next summer and while there’s currently no noise regarding an extension, the south London-born forward made it clear he wants to stay.

“Arsenal is my team, through and through,” Nelson said.

“I’m a supports, all my friends and family are supporters. Hopefully, I’ll be playing for them for many more years.”

As for his relationship with the boss, Nelson cherishes that there’s clarity in what’s expected of the players.

“I feel like he has a plan in his head of what he wants to do with the team and I feel like you see it now. He’s building a team that understands the philosophy and the way he wants to play.

“I’m just happy to be a part of it, really,” he added.
