Alexis My advice for ‘talented’ Nelson

Reiss Nelson has caught the eye of many with a series of exciting displays so far this season – and that includes Alexis.

With a front-row seat to the 17-year-old’s development, there are few better positioned to offer guidance to up-and-coming stars than the Chile international – and he likes what he has seen so far.

“Reiss has real talent, but he still has a lot to learn from other players,” Alexis told Arsenal Player.

“From playing more matches and getting more experience. That’s exactly what the boss is providing for him, so that he can carry on improving as a player.

“He must train every day and get better every day. It’s all down to him whether or not he wants to end up at the very top of the sport.”
