Reports suggest that Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Yacine Adli will join Arsenal when he turns 18 next month (via The Telegraph).
Unai Emery has yet to make his first official signing as Arsenal’s new head coach but we won’t have to wait long if these reports are to be believed.
We reported last week that the Gunners were keen on signing Yacine Adli, a 17-year-old midfielder who plays for Paris Saint-Germain.
The Ligue 1 side are apparently keen to keep hold of the player and have offered him an extension on his current deal which expires at the end of the season.
But there are many suitors for the man who has made 33 appearances for French youth teams including Arsenal.
Now, reports in France suggest that the Gunners have won the race for his signature and that Adli will make the move to North London upon his 18th birthday at the end of July.

Yacine Adli seems like an excellent prospect and could be a shrewd addition to the club. The French report claims that the Gunners will have to pay PSG just £224,000 for his signing which, if true, could prove to be a bargain.
