Arsenal star has revealed that Manchester City attacker convinced him to leave the Emirates Stadium in the summer, according to report.
The Bundesliga outfit signed Nelson on a season long loan deal from Arsenal on transfer deadline day as they needed an attacker in the mold of former Arsenal academy graduate Serge Gnabry, who starred on loan at the club from Bayern Munich last season.
Nagelsmann has now explained why he decided to bring the 18-year-old in. “What he brings with his tempo and his one-on-one ability, we didn’t have so much of that in the squad” he said.
Nelson himself had said something similar earlier regarding his style of play. “Jadon knows I like one against ones, He knows I’m a fast player and said there were a lot of those opportunities [in the Bundesliga]. We’ve got a lot of similarities so he said I should go over there and that’s how I can show my brilliance”
Brilliance, he has certainly shown in recent weeks, with four goals already for the club, including a brace last week.
