The situation around Nelson’s future at Arsenal looked uncertain due to his current contract set to expire on June 30th, but it seems like the club is keen on keeping him onboard. The young talent has made significant contributions to the team’s success last season by scoring three Premier League goals, including a dramatic winner against Bournemouth.
Moving onto Maitland-Niles who spent last season at Southampton on loan, making over twenty appearances for them. As he was out of favor under Arteta’s management style since early this year, it comes as no surprise that he will be leaving Emirates Stadium after spending most of his career there.
