Arsenal are gearing up for another tough season after finishing fifth last campaign, meaning another year in the Europa League.
The result is a diminished transfer budget, with Emery being given £45m to rejuvenate a squad in dire need of reinforcements.
The Spaniard has already outlined which positions need strengthening the most – a new centre-back, a left-back, an Aaron Ramsey replacement and a wide forward.
While there is progress in terms of a defender as Arsenal and Celtic continue talks over Kieran Tierney, a move for a forward is further than ever.
Pursuits over Yannick Carrasco and Ryan Fraser hit brick walls in recent times as Dalian Yifeng and Bournemouth refuse to enter talks.
However, Arsenal youngster Nelson is ready to give his manager a timely boost by stating he intends to fight for a spot in next season’s squad.
The Gunners are yet to decide whether or not the 19-year-old will be loaned out again.
Nelson spent last year on loan to Hoffenheim in the Bundesliga where he shone and wilted throughout different periods in the season.
The England Under-21 international was brilliant in the first half of the campaign, scoring six goals and laying on a single assist in his first seven league appearances for the Rhein-Neckar-Arena outfit
However, he failed to make a single start for the club after December 15 following discipline issues.
But Nelson is ready to put it behind him and has made a strong stance to Emery over his plans for next year.
He said: “One hundred per-cent [the loan spell was a positive experience]. Germany made me grow up as a person and on the pitch it showed.
“Whenever I got any minutes, I would have to take any opportunity that comes my way.
“I learned a lot of stuff. I made a lot of friends, and also I made a good connection with the managers.
“They taught me a lot of stuff that I can take on in my career. It was difficult, leaving, but Arsenal are my team and I want to go back to Arsenal and play.
“I am Arsenal through and through. I support Arsenal. All my family support Arsenal.
“That’s an interaction I have with the fans. It’s a good thing. They support a lot of the young talent coming up through Arsenal. It’s good.
“I have got a bit bigger. I was playing at Arsenal when I was 17, when he [Wenger] gave me my [first league start] debut against Southampton, so I was very immature when I was playing.
“Now I have a more mature role about me. I look to play link-up play, one v ones, and I think I am more mature.”
