Crystal Palace boss Patrick Vieira is targeting Arsenal winger Reiss Nelson.

The Sun says Nelson tops the Eagles' list for a new wide man and Gunners icon Vieira wants a loan deal.

Palace have one Prem loan left after their swoop for Chelsea midfielder Conor Gallagher — as SunSport revealed this week.

Arsenal sent Nelson, 21, to Germans Hoffenheim in 2018-19 but he has been a fringe player since and they could lend him out to a Premier League rival.

Upon his return to the Emirates the winger made 17 league appearances in 2019-20.

But he found himself cut adrift from Mikel Arteta's plans last term so a loan move could be in the interest of both player and club.

A loan would also leave Palace money for a striker as Vieira makes wholesale changes to his squad.
