Patrick Vieira tells Crystal Palace board to sign Arsenal star
Crystal Palace manager, Patrick Vieira, has recommended the signing of Arsenal winger, Reiss Nelson, to the club’s board.
The Sun reports that Vieira is looking to strengthen the wide areas of Crystal Palace’s attack and a season-long loan for Nelson is being considered.
Vieira is a huge admirer of the 21-year-old England youngster.

Nelson was unable to secure a regular role under Arsenal head coach, Mikel Arteta, last season, making just nine appearances for the Emirates club in all competitions.
It’s understood that Arsenal are willing to let Nelson leave in order to help fund a move for a new attacking midfielder.
Meanwhile, Crystal Palace have already secured one Premier League loan deal this week as they brought in Chelsea midfielder, Conor Gallagher for the season.
The Eagles are also keen on RB Leipzig’s Ademola Lookman, but the Bundesliga club are holding out for a £3.5m loan fee for the player.
