during the Premier League 2 match between Arsenal and Liverpool at Meadow Park on August 25, 2017 in Borehamwood, England.

Arsenal youngster Reiss Nelson admits that while he is just glad to be getting some minutes for Gunner’s senior team at the moment, he would like to feature regularly in a more advanced role in the nearest future.

Reiss Nelson made his first senior team start for the Gunners against Doncaster in the Carabao Cup on Wednesday.

The 17-year-old starlet was deployed at wing-back and didn’t have the most pleasant match. Although nor did most of the players on parade since they only secured a narrow victory, 1-0 against their League One opponent.

While the England youngster insists that he’s only delighted to get selected, he also admits that he would prefer to play in a much more attacking role in the nearest future.

Fans are already predicting that the England youth international could become another Oxlade-Chamberlain, who was constantly played out of position during his six seasons at the Emirates Stadium he signed for rivals Liverpool for £35million this summer.

Reiss Nelson did pretty well during pre-season and has netted an outstanding six Premier League 2 goals in 5 matches so far this season playing in a more advanced role for the youth side, either as a wing forward or attacking midfielder.
