Reiss Nelson’s future at Arsenal remains in doubt
Nelson has provided crucial moments for the Gunners during the title race this season, including a memorable last-gasp winner at home to Bournemouth which kept Arsenal top of the league back in March.
Since then, Arsenal’s title challenge has fallen at the last hurdle, and rivals Man City will wrap up their third Premier League title in as many seasons if they beat Chelsea on Sunday, or if the Gunners lose to Nottingham Forest at the City Ground the day before.
