Dutch side, Feyenoord, are not hanging about in the transfer market after the 11th hour collapse of their loan move for Man United’s Amad Diallo.
Diallo was injured in his last training session with the Red Devils before the transfer was due to go ahead, and the bad news for Man United is that the youngster is likely to be out for six weeks, according to a statement released on the club’s official website.
Feyenoord have therefore turned their attentions elsewhere, but are continuing their shopping in the Premier League as they target Arsenal’s Reiss Nelson.
According to a tweet from respected journalist, Fabrizio Romano, talks are advanced and ongoing, however, Nelson must renew his Gunners contract first, before a loan can be effected.
?? …but Nelson has to extend his contract with Arsenal before leaving on loan. Talks ongoing.

With Arsenal rock bottom of the table with no wins and no goals in three games, it’s an interesting move to allow one of their young talents to take flight.
With Ainsley Maitland-Niles also seemingly wanting out, per his message on Instagram cited by CaughtOffside, this could be a rocky last couple of days of the window for Mikel Arteta.
