Arsenal forward Reiss Nelson has been hailed as ‘a fine player’ in the Netherlands as he starts to make an impression at loan club Feyenoord.

Nelson has been on loan with the Dutch side since the beginning of the season, having joined them in the summer in search of first-team football.

It’s been something of a difficult campaign for him, though, spending most of the season sat on the bench, with manager Arne Slot even questioning his fitness.

However, he’s steadily turned that around since December, picking up more and more minutes and starting to make an impression on those watching him.

The Arsenal man is now very much a regular and put in his best performance to date over the weekend, bagging a goal and two assists in his sides 4-1 win over Heracles Almelo.

That’s earned him plenty of praise, particularly from Pierre Van Hooijdonk, although he believes the Arsenal loanee has one major improvement to make.

“I thought he played pretty well,” stated Theo Janssen, relayed by Feyenoord Pings.

“Of course, I’ve seen him before, but then he didn’t really stand out to me. Now I really started paying attention to him.

“I think he plays really simple, looks for the combination a lot, is calm on the ball, plays a lot between the lines, and then he is also pretty good in his passing. A fine player, actually.”

“Especially also because of his speed, because you have an extra weapon that you can get behind that last line, and he fills in that nicely,” added Van Hooijdonk.

“Only: he has to start scoring goals and giving assists.”
