Reiss Nelson’s has picked up the August player of the month award for his impressive performances in the opening month of the new Premier League 2 campaign.
The 17-year-old attacker has scored five goals in three games as the Gunners started the season with wins over Derby and Manchester City and a defeat to Liverpool.
Nelson laid down strong foundations for his eye-catching start to the season with a series of dynamic cameos for Arsene Wenger’s first team during the recent tour of Australia and China and in the Emirates Cup.

Yesterday, the boss even tipped him to take advantage of the departure of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.
The shortlist and winner was selected by a panel of the Premier League Football Development Department after PL2 club managers had nominated the best individual performance from each of their opponents during the month.
