According to the Daily Mail, Arsenal and Manchester City are set to battle it out in the summer for Paris Saint-Germain youngster Yacine Adli, who has really impressed for the club’s youth side this season.
The 17-year-old is still yet to play a game for the French giant’s senior side, although he has made 11 appearances for their under-19 team.
Adli is an attacking midfielder by trade, and possesses exceptional technical ability – a prerequisite for any Arsene Wenger or Pep Guardiola signing.
The Daily Mail claim that the Gunners and City want to bring the young Frenchman to England in the summer, and he could be available for as little as £250,000 – an absolute bargain in the current transfer market.
Both Premier League clubs are well stocked in the attacking midfield department, however, so the signing of the PSG teenager will surely be one made with one eye on the future.
For just £250,000, though, signing Adli would represent little risk, and could be one that turns out to be a real coup in years to come
