Reiss Nelson who is on loan with the Bundesliga side Hoffenheim is expecting to make through Emery’s first team.
The England U-21 forward displayed an impressive performance in Germany, scoring six times and grabbing a crucial assist for his side in a couple of months.
In England, he was the talk of the town when he won the Bundesliga’s ‘Rookie of the Month’ award for October, but since then he hasn’t been in his good form.
Speaking to The Times [£], he said: “If I wasn’t aiming to break into the Arsenal first team, that wouldn’t be the correct mindset. I need to go there with that mindset of breaking into that team.”
Of his time on the Continent, he added: “For me, it’s just about playing — getting the game time you need to prove to everyone you can play at that high level.
“I had to learn very quickly and adapt to the German language,” he says. “On my debut, the ball went over the top, and I just heard everyone shouting, ‘Weiter, weiter, weiter’.
“I didn’t know what they were talking about! I realised it meant, ‘Run, run, press, press’. That’s the intensity you want to play at. It can only make me better.”
