Paris Saint-Germain youngster Yacine Adli has reportedly signed for Arsenal on a three-year deal with an option for two further seasons (via The Guardian).
On Tuesday, Arsenal announced that they had made the first signing of the Unai Emery era with the free transfer of Stephan Lichtsteiner.
The Swiss international moved from Juventus and it seems that the Gunners have raided another one of Europe’s top clubs for a player.
Reports in France suggest that Arsenal have signed Paris Saint-Germain youngster Yacine Adli.
According to RMC Sport, the French midfielder has been ‘seduced’ by Arsenal’s project and will sign a three-year deal with an option for two further seasons.

Arsenal will reportedly have to pay the Ligue 1 champions a fee of €255,000 for the player who has made over thirty appearances for France at various youth levels.
It’s good to hear reports that Arsenal have agreed on a deal for Yacine Adli. The Frenchman is a highly thought-of talent who PSG are said to be disappointed to lose. He has drawn comparisons to a young Cesc Fabregas and if Adli develops into becoming half as good as the Spaniard then he will be a shrewd acquisition for the Gunners.
