Reiss Nelson has penned a new long-term deal with Arsenal.

Nelson, who first joined the club as an eight-year-old, has made 34 Premier League appearances for the Gunners, including 11 last season. In total, he has scored four goals and provided three assists.

“Reiss is a player I have admired since the first day I was here," manager Mikel Arteta told the club's official website. "He has tremendous ability and is such an exciting offensive talent. Reiss knows how important he is to our squad with the quality he has.

“It’s great that Reiss has committed his future to us - he knows this club so well, he grew up here and we look forward to enjoying many more good moments with him."

Nelson netted three times in 2022/23, including a dramatic late winner against AFC Bournemouth to earn the Castrol Game Changer of the Season award.

Arsenal's first match in pre-season is against Nurnberg on 13 July.
