Returning to his boyhood club after a successful loan spell at Hoffenheim last season, Reiss Nelson may be a key player for a rebuilding Arsenal side.
As the Gunners continue to mould their squad for Unai Emery, Nelson could prove to be the dynamic winger he is after, with Traders already backing this to be the case.

— LaLiga (@LaLigaEN) February 16, 2019
Winning everything with Los Blancos, and establishing himself as one of the best left-backs in modern football history, it could be time for a new challenge for Marcelo.
With Real Madrid already signing his long term replacement, Ferland Mendy, a growing number of reports are suggesting the Brazilian could be on the way out.
These reports have already seen Traders get behind the fullback, as there will be no shortage of potential suitors should he be on the move.
Fagner (£0.24) tempts new Arsenal Technical Director
Another Brazilian fullback makes the Index today.
Linked with Arsenal overnight as new Technical Director, Edu, begins to help shape the squad, Traders were quick to move on the attacking fullback.
A low-value commodity on the Index currently, a rise of 14p would indicate a move outside of Brazil could have a big impact amongst Traders looking for gems.
