According to PA journalist Mark Mann-Bryans, Arsenal are willing to send Reiss Nelson out on loan in the January transfer window. The well-known and well-respected journalist has claimed on Twitter that the Gunners are looking for a club in the Championship to send the 21-year-old out on loan before the window closes.
Arsenal looking into a potential Championship loan move for Reiss Nelson this month.
His game-time has dried up and development stalled – club clearly saw improvement in Smith Rowe following his stint at Huddersfield.
Could be one that progresses in the coming days.

According to WhoScored, Nelson has made only 70 minutes in the Premier League for Arsenal so far this season. The winger has also made three starts and one substitute appearance in the Europa League for the North London club this campaign, scoring one goal and providing one assist in the process, according to WhoScored.
Nelson is going to struggle for playing time at Arsenal in the coming weeks and months, and a loan move to a club in the Championship where he can play regular first-team football would be beneficial to his growth and development as a footballer.
