Crystal Palace Begin Talks With Arsenal Over a Move For Reiss Nelson


Crystal Palace have begun talks with Arsenal over the signing of English international Reiss Nelson, as they look forward to replacing Michael Olise ahead of next season.

Fulham, Crystal Palace, and West Ham are the three London clubs interested in signing Reiss Nelson away from Arsenal ahead of the 2024–25 Premier League campaign.

It is believed that Crystal Palace are ready to offer a £10 million bid for the England international. However, Arsenal will consider selling the youngster for £25 million. 

Reiss Nelson sees a move to Crystal Palace as a step up in his career, as he is not part of the Mikel Arteta plan ahead of next season.

The attacker played 225 minutes of action in the 2023–24 season. The minutes are not enough for a player of his calibre that wants to develop into a world-class player.

Crystal Palace remain a great place for the youngster to shine, coupled with the fact that there is no pressure at the club compared to Arsenal.

Also, Nelson is going to be a huge addition to the Crystal Palace side that exceptionally finished the season with six wins in seven matches.

The club hierarchy are eyeing an European finish next season, and they are ready to back the manager, Oliver Glasner, with the right signing
