According to report coming from France via TeamTalk media, it’s claimed Arsenal are set to sign highly-rated French midfielder Yacine Adli after agreeing to a 3-year contract terms with Paris Saint-Germain for the youngster.
Arsenal boss Unai Emery has been trying to raid his former club since his announcement has the Gunners head-coach and has identified Adli as his first signing for Arsenal and this summer just weeks after handing him handing him his senior debut during a 1-1 draw at Caen last season.
Adli, 17, is one for PSG’s most talented rising superstars and the club were believed to be trying on tying him down to a long-term contract but failed to convince him his future remains in Paris.
TeamTalk are citing a report from Paris United that the youngster has turned down PSG’s lucrative offer in order to sign an initial three-year deal with the Gunners with option to extend the contract by a further two-years.
It also says that the youngster was convinced by Arsenal’s project after meeting with club officials and has also snubbed a number of other top European sides to join the Gunners.
Adli feels he has a better chance of making it to the Gunners first team than if he was to remain in France with PSG so he is expected to be announced Emery’s first signing.
The attacking midfielder has superb technical ability and is comfortable with both feet so his signing is considered to be something of a coup for Arsenal as he has a huge future ahead of him.
We’ll have to wait and see if Adli is able to force his way in to Emery’s plans next season but it looks like we’ve snapped-up one of Europe’s most exciting youngster so let’s hope he develops in north London.
