Kolasinac - What makes Nelson such a talent

Reiss Nelson and Sead Kolasinac

He impressed in pre-season to the point that he played in our Community Shield win over Chelsea, so it’s no surprise to learn that Reiss Nelson has caught the eye of his more experienced team-mates.

Sead Kolasinac has played against the teenager in training and believes he is set for a big future.

“You realise from his style of play that he’s really talented,” Kolasinac told Arsenal Player. “He’s quick, a very strong dribbler and he has everything you need as an offensive player. 

“He’s still young and has a lot to learn, also academically. 

“It’s good for him to have more experienced players around who can take care of him, like Mesut, who plays in his position, or other players too. I’m very impressed by him.”
